Book Review: Growing a Farmer

I just finished 'How I learned to Live Off the Land' by Kurt Timmermeister. Tim has written a very good book about how he changed his 4 acres of overgrown land into a 12 acre successful small farm.

He really goes into good details on how he's had to adapt and learn to work out his problems that he encountered.
His chapters are:
  • Growing the Farm
  • Bees
  • Fruits, Apples, Vinegar
  • Sheep, Goats, Pastures and Grazing
  • Cows
  • Dairying
  • Raw Milk
  • Vegetables
  • Fowl
  • Pigs
  • The Slaughter
  • Butchering
  • The Present-Day Farm
  • The Table
All in all, a good read and worth the money to acquire it and learn how to plan for a homestead.
