Barnyard In Your Backyard is the essential primer for first-time farmers. Each chapter spotlights a single animal and provides simple, clear instructions on what it takes to keep your livestock healthy and happy. You’ll learn what type of housing and how much land your animals need, what to feed them, how to breed them and how to handle routine health care. There’s even a calendar with reminders for daily, weekly and monthly routine care. Covering everything from which breeds of ducks are best for eggs and which are best for meat to how to buy a beef or dairy calf to where to find a market for manure, this easy-to-use handbook teaches you how to operate a mini-farm for fun, profit or both.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
