Recommended by Farmer Ted as the best book to start with for vegetable growing enterprises.
Recommended by Farmer Ted himself to use as a guide to buying my first farmland.... A homesteading manual from the turn of the century, this book is a wealth of information regarding the tips and tricks of running a productive small scale farm.
If we only could get one book, this would be it. Written by someone who has a SCHOOL for self-sufficiency, and has done all sorts of experiments to come up with the best options.
Inspiring, practical, and a classic for "the movement." I love this book. Gene Logsdon is a force in the world of small farming, a guru in his own right, full of technical information and poetic insights.
Joel Salatin does it again. Yes I Can!
I've already been "Honeybee Di" on Farmtown. Now, I'm trying to figure out how to do it for real.
Couldn't put it down. Not for the faint-hearted. Like the idea of fleeing conventional life and trying to start a farm with no experience.
If you don't feel like trolling the internet for days on end to get a baseline of knowledge for a radical small farm project, start here.
Jeff, the farm manager, recommended this as the most important book I should own. It's an investment, one I'm saving up for.
Full of ideas. The hubby is eagerly reading through it as I write this.
Another one I couldn't put down. Like recognizing a kindred spirit and sighing with relief "It's not just me!"
I bought this right before I bought my subaru. Devoured this book. Scary, and enticing. Still have my Subaru. Also known as Scoobydoo. or Stoopidu when the engine light goes on.
