It doesn’t take a lot of space to reap a bountiful harvest of nutritious, affordable food. With proper planning, you can grow your own fresh vegetables and fruit; raise chickens and goats for eggs, milk, or meat; and keep bees for honey—on as little as a quarter-acre of land.
Whether your goal is to eat healthier, save money, live more sustainably, or a combination of these, Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) helps you get there. Comprehensive and detailed, it covers everything you need to know to plan, purchase, plant, raise, harvest, preserve, and enjoy your own backyard farm. Written by someone who has done exactly that, this helpful guide is packed with information, illustrations, instructions, advice, and resources.
“Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) is the book I wished I had 30 years ago, when I first imagined our homesteading dream. It is comprehensive. It is actionable. Not like the first homesteading book I read, which was just a list of recipes from all over the USA, in no particular order, Angela England’s new book offers a thorough, step by step plan to add more self reliance to your life, whether you have a lot in town, a half acre in the suburbs, or a quarter section in rural paradise. My favourite part of this book is its emphasis on getting started right now, where you are at, even in a city apartment.” ~ 5-star Amazon review by C. Daziel
