With just a quarter acre of land, you can feed a family of four with fresh, organic food year-round. This comprehensive guide to self-sufficiency gives you all the information you need to grow and preserve a variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, and grains; raise chickens for eggs and meat; raise cows, sheep, and goats for meat or milk; raise pigs and rabbits; and keep honey bees. Simple instructions make it easy to enjoy canned, frozen, dried, and pickled produce all winter; use your own grains to make bread, pasta, and beer; turn fresh milk into delicious homemade yogurt, butter, and cheese; make your own wine, cordials, and herbal teas; and much, much more. It truly is possible to eat entirely from your backyard.

“Bottom line is, even if you’re not ready for complete self-sufficiency, in today’s economic climate, it just makes sense to try to produce some of your own food. And this book is a great way to get your feet wet.”

I am so glad to have found your website. I have wanted to start using herbs for a long time, but haven't known where to start. I love how much information you have on your website! I also really appreciate the Youtube videos, especially about the smoothies. I decided to start out with the Daily Boost mix, and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can start having delicious, healthy smoothies for breakfast! It is time I turned my diet around and started consuming healthier foods, and your store is helping me to do that.

Keep up the good work!
