All the information you need to homestead--gathered in one ultimate, essential book!

In barnyards and backyards, on rooftops and in alleyways, a movement is happening--the modern homesteading movement. Whether it's turning a lawn into a vegetable garden, getting a flock of chickens, or transforming cucumbers into pickles, people everywhere are taking charge of their own food supply. Ashley English, a major figure in the return to homesteading, gives newcomers her time-honored tips for successfully overseeing food production in their own homes. Totally updating material from her phenomenal homesteading books-- Keeping Bees , Keeping Chickens , Canning & Preserving , and Home Dairy --this collection covers everything from preserving jams and jellies to whipping butter and keeping a hive of honeybees. Ashley provides entry points, troubleshooting tips, and inspiration for putting the food your family consumes back in your own hands.
