In the grand scheme of things, it really hasn’t been very long since the majority of people living in the area now known as the lower 48 derived their sustenance directly from the land they lived on or environs close by. There were fewer cities and they were much smaller and less densely populated, and towns were more of a meeting place than where many people made their homes. Most folks lived on farms or larger parcels of property, and the common method of acquiring their food was to harvest or grow it or trade for it. The rule of the day was to grow what you ate and eat what you grow, and the harvest was intended to produce enough so there would be adequate food to get them through the winter. The norm was to process one’s own livestock and can or otherwise preserve one’s produce, grains and other foodstuffs. From clothing to homes, most of what they had was the result of the work of their own hands.
