Resource Library

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.

 

The Contrary Farmer

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.

You Can Farm

Joel Salatin does it again. Yes I Can!

Keeping Bees

I've already been "Honeybee Di" on Farmtown. Now, I'm trying to figure out how to do it for real.

Blood Lust Chickens and Renegade Sheep

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.

Introduction to Permaculture

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.

Edible Forest Gardens

Jeff, the farm manager, recommended this as the most important book I should own. It's an investment, one I'm saving up for.

Making your small farm profitable

Full of ideas. The hubby is eagerly reading through it as I write this.

Writings of a Deliberate Agrarian

Another one I couldn't put down. Like recognizing a kindred spirit and sighing with relief "It's not just me!"

Farewell My Subaru

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.
