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.”

Hello,
Just wanted to thank you for the great website! I recently received my order from you. It came very quickly! I was pleasantly surprised by the smell of the fresh lavender. The package was sitting on my counter unopened and we
could still smell it! I can't wait to use them and I will definitely be ordering more from you.

I also wanted to thank you for the information you have about garlic. My son started getting a cough with chest congestion. I began giving him a crushed clove mixed into lemon juice and honey 3 times a day. In two days he was better! He has gotten it before and it seems to linger for weeks! I also started feeling the flu coming on not to long ago, I did the same thing and in two days my aches, fever, and sore throat were gone! Thank you so much for sharing that info with us.
