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.”

Thank you for your wonderful service. Our orders come quickly, and the herbs smell so tantalizing we have to open the box and brew some tea as soon as we get it. The books you offer have been a great help, and I hope to get a few more that are on my wish list for a birthday present!! I tell everyone about your store, and have been blessed to share herbs and tinctures with friends. Thanks again for helping us to become healthier and for all of the great info.
