Backyard Homesteading : A Back-to Basics Guide for Self-Sufficiency - by David Toht (Paperback)
About this item
This award-winning book addresses the needs of people who want to take control of the food they eat and the products they use—even if they live in an urban or suburban house on a typical-size lot. It shows homeowners how to turn their yard into a sustainable and self-sufficient "homestead" for raising livestock and providing homegrown food including fruits, vegetables, honey, eggs, milk, and meat. Backyard Homesteading also provides practical instructions for preserving food, making beer and wine, making soap, and more. Well illustrated with new photographs and illustrations, this revised 2nd edition provides important new information on attracting pollinators, and an expanded section on raising chickens.
