4.0 out of 5 stars Great starter guide August 3, 2014
By Melissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many things I've already read but there where some new things that gave me great ideas. The one thing missing that really stuck out was whole grains. I would definitely recommend this set of books for new homesteaders or anyone looking for prepping information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction, not comprehensive August 4, 2014
By Katy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of several smaller booklets on various small farm topics. There will be a few helpful tidbits even if you grew up in the country. It reads more like the helpful advice of a farming uncle or country neighbor than like a comprehensive text. It does an extremely good job of explaining how much work is involved in each project, costs, benefits, and projected savings. It's not well reformatted as a bundle though. The content that is repeated in each booklet hasn't been edited out to only appear once. Overall a pleasant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the beginner August 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book contains a lot of information for people just starting out in homesteading. I learned quite a bit about starting your own orchard. If you are researching ways to be more self sufficient then this is a good book.

It's like sitting in the kitchen of an experienced homesteader while he gives you all the benefit of his experience. Very practical, especially if you are looking to buy and set up your first homestead.

I live in the frozen north and I have gotten a significant amount of real useable advice. I learned a great deal about growing orchards in the cold which I will most certainly try.

I thought this book was full of good information. I especially liked the zone, germination, etc. details for each plant. I will be referring back to this information when I plan my garden.
