Synopses & Reviews
Handy Farm Devices and How to Make Them, a classic from the Golden Age of American Farming, is as useful and pertinent for homesteaders and small-scale farmers today as it was when it was first published more than seventy-five ago. A wealth of labor- and money-saving projects fills its pages: spill-proof chicken waterers; a portable chicken coop; a lightweight orchard ladder; a small truss bridge; an easy fence-post and stump-puller; gates that don't sag; gates that lift over snowdrifts; a handy wood splitter - even a bicycle-powered washing machine. Handy Farm Devices and How to Make Them is a rare and engaging combination of nostalgic Americana and helpful instruction, sure to appeal to everyone inclined toward self-sufficiency and the country life.
