Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average familys food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-suf?ciency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.

Synopsis:

Start a mini farm on a quarter acre or less and provide 85 percent of the food for a family of four—and earn an income.
