About this item


Book Synopsis

"In a world where so many of us are craving a life of simplicity and meaning, Old-Fashioned on Purpose gives you the roadmap to rediscovering what really matters." --Hal Elrod, bestselling author of The Miracle Morning

With a foreword from singer, songwriter, and New York Times bestselling author Rory Feek

Creator of The Prairie Homestead blog and the Old-Fashioned On Purpose podcast Jill Winger reveals that the secrets to finding happiness today is by turning to the lost arts of the past

When the pandemic hit in 2020, flour and vegetable seeds flew off the shelves. But homesteader and entrepreneur Jill Winger believes these longings for sourdough bread and fresh veggies are more than a trend.

As our society races toward progress, we've left something important behind. We are more connected than ever before, yet we're still feeling unfulfilled. In Old-Fashioned on Purpose, Winger shows how simplifying our lives and adopting retro skills such as gardening and handiwork can be the key to creating the happy and healthy life we're yearning for. Inside these pages, readers will learn:

  • How to find joy in the kitchen (even if you hate to cook)
  • Proven strategies for growing your own groceries
  • The surprising stress-relievers that can be found in your backyard
  • How to craft a more grounded routine and save money in the process
  • Clever tips and creative DIYs to help you embark on your old-fashioned journey

You don't have to live on a farm to cultivate a simpler life. This inspiring and practical book offers a powerful new sense of purpose, with plenty of tomatoes, chickens, and bread making along the way.

Review Quotes

"I have long-admired Jill Winger's ability to think for herself, question the status quo, and live a life that is unconventional. Old-Fashioned on Purpose details how she bravely stepped off the well-worn path and offers a road map for others seeking to live a more authentic and fulfilling life. This book will inspire you to reconsider how you're spending your days and help you reconnect with what matters most." --Erin Benzakein, founder of Floret

"In a world where so many of us are craving a life of simplicity and meaning, Old-Fashioned on Purpose gives you the roadmap to rediscovering what really matters. From cultivating community to growing your own food to returning to nature, Jill Winger's new book will transform your life in the most meaningful ways. Last year, my family went from city dwellers to homesteaders, and we've never been happier! I highly recommend reading this book and learning how to cultivate a slower, simpler, and more joyful life." --Hal Elrod, bestselling author of The Miracle Morning and The Miracle Equation

"[An] essential must-read resource for anyone whose mind, body, and spirit are craving a healthier way of life." --Julie Cantrell, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of Perennials

"Old-Fashioned on Purpose is an important read for anyone who wants to reclaim a richer and more hands-on life today... An inspiring and spirited read." --Michael Easter, author of The Comfort Crisis and Scarcity Brain

"Filled to the brim with inspirational, yet relatable stories, [and] seasoned with homesteading tips throughout." --Justin Rhodes, YouTuber and author of Rooted

"Partially a memoir, partially an inspirational primer, partially dispelling the myth of the highly curated Instagrammable homestead, but 100% honest, Jill tells it how it is - chicken poop, cow manure and all - while presenting some very compelling arguments for returning to a simpler, but far more fulfilling and satisfying way of life. She points out not only the vast benefits, but relative ease, of growing your own vegetables and raising livestock to feed your family once you've mastered the basics (and with some neat tricks she shares along the way.) As they say, cream always rises to the top, and Jill is the prime example of this." --Lisa Steele, creator of Fresh Eggs Daily
