Are you interested in the country lifestyle or becoming more self-reliant? Do you think about someday raising livestock or growing crops? If you're ready to make these thoughts a reality, is the perfect place to start. Farming experts Philip Hasheider and Samantha Johnson explain farming from start to finish: build your own fence, repair your own machinery, and know what to look for when you're buying a tractor. Instead of buying a book on each subject area, you need just this one, which condenses the most important and relevant information on every aspect of running a farm into a single handy volume. And unlike other books, it's designed specifically for the owner of a working farm.
This practical illustrated guide provides hard-won expert advice on raising livestock and growing crops, making repairs, harvesting and butchering, managing a woodlot, and more. It's everything you need to know to establish and maintain your farm.
