Description
From the publisher of Hobby Farms magazine, itself a leading source of news and developments in what has been dubbed the lifestyle farm industry, this heavily illustrated guide offers a close-up look at life on a hobby farm, providing sound guidance to those who want to start or develop their own farm. It covers equipment from hand tools to farm vehicles; gardening fundamentals like site selection, soil quality, fertilizing, planting, propagation, and pest control; selecting and raising farm animals, including feeding, pastures, poisonous plants, shelter, illnesses, and reproduction; and how to harvest and preserve your produce. Here too is advice on practical concerns that are frequently overlooked, like finding the right spot for your agribusiness, with good roads and proximity to consumers; creating a farm economy with sustainability and self-sufficiency; and navigating legal, real estate, and tax issues.

"From the early stages of planning to the day-to-day life on a farm, whatever questions you might have, chances are Carol [Ekarius] has thought of them and answered them in Hobby Farm."—Karen Keb Acevedo
