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 a huge fan of your store and products. I'm fairly new to herbs, but
learning fast and enjoying the newfound "power" of knowledge and confidence
to help my family stay healthy. Thanks for all you do, especially on your
website, to guide and provide so much information for people like me. I was
intrigued by your note on brushing with a touch of cayenne. I have been
brushing with baking soda and a dab of peppermint or spearmint oil, in an
effort to "natural-ize" some of my health/body products. It leaves the mouth
feeling ultra-refreshed and invigorated, much as you described the ceyenne.
You might like to try it! May God continue to bless your ministry.
