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.”

Hi April, I am so grateful for the peppermint & spearmint tea bags that you sent me. That was so nice of you! When I opened the package it smelled soooo good! I tried the peppermint in the tea I made today and this batch came out better than any of the others so far. I think I'm finally getting the hang of making the tea without over-steeping it. And the peppermint really helps. I only put one teabag in for a pot of water big enough to fill a pitcher.
