Do you know someone with a mini farm that’s hard to shop for? These gifts for homesteaders are the best things you can give all those hobby farmers in your life. Whether they’re big on gardening, baking, or raising chickens there’s something here to delight them.

Most of these would make great gifts for holidays, but I also love them as housewarming gift ideas for someone who recently started a homestead. You could also just use this as a fun shopping list to find fun accessories for your very own small-scale farm!

Since all the homesteaders I know (including myself and the ones in my family) tend to lean more practical with their wish lists, I tried to stick to fun and practical gifts on this list too.
