20 Unique Weathervanes For Your Homestead

Before radio, television, satellites, and smartphones, a weathervane was the weather reporter of the homestead. Atop the roofs of homes and barns, they told homesteaders how fast and which direction the wind was blowing. Sudden changes of direction or wind speed could mean a storm was approachingβ€”an early warning system that helped homesteaders save countless animals and harvests.

Today, weathervanes are decorations in gardens and on rooftops, adding personality to whatever space they inhabit. Whether you’re looking for a traditional rooster or arrow option, or want something a bit more unique, we’ve found some of the best options to add a homestead vibe to your garden or yard.
