Synopses & Reviews
When the farm is a lifestyle, not just a way to earn a living, thats hobby farming. Most of us want to live a sustainable life in which we protect the land and keep it safe from development and overproduction. But we can take this a step further by learning how to grow and savor what we can produce ourselves—while still maintaining an alternative career to fund this passion.

Grow your own food.
Raise chickens, horses, llamas, bees, and more.
Practice being (a little) off the grid.
Sell the bounty in your local community.
Balance a professional career with a rural lifestyle.
The Joy of Hobby Farming is a book that will excite armchair farmers and inspire any do-it-yourselfer.
The ultimate practical dream book for living in the country.
