Urban Survival DVD Review for Food Production Systems for a Backyard or Small Farm If you re thinking of growing your own food, you better know what you re doing. Farming is a skill set that s quickly being lost and forgotten with the new generation, and it s more important then ever to learn it now! Peak oil, resource depletion and the collapse of society is coming right around the bend and if you re not growing your own food now, you ll be multiplying the amount of suffering you and your family will experience when SHTF. Luckily it s not too late, and we have a great product for you, that will give you a great introduction to growing your own food. If you re interested in backyard food production, this is the DVD to get! whether you just want to have a few hens in your backyard or you re thinking of completely overhauling your property and implementing a completely self sustainable food production system, this DVD will have the information you need. I ve seen/read a lot of videos/books on homesteading and food production, and this DVD in my opinion is one of the clearest, no BS products out there. It definitely has our recommendation. Food Production Systems for a Backyard or Small Farm is approximately 2 hours long with 9 chapter and numerous sub sections ranging in subjects like: water collection and treatment, garden logistics, rabbit and poultry raising and butchering, dogs, food forests, and much more. It s bookmarked and broken up in such a way that it s extremely easy to go back and review any particular subject. A single DVD is obviously not enough to teach you everything you need to know about farming which is why the DVD also comes with a CD loaded with .PDF documents covering the more advanced aspects of farming. There are 64 .PDFs and they cover a wide a range of subjects. This may not be the best product for advanced homesteaders and food growers, but this DVD is definitely the perfect product to start your journey into the homesteading, farming, gardening lifestyle. Marjory and her family have been growing their own food for many years and her experience shows with this well thought out, and articulate DVD that she s produced. I ll admit, it s a bit pricy, but worth every penny. Just read the amazon reviews and you ll know why this product has one of our highest recommendations. --Urban Survival Network.com

From simply adding a few hens to your backyard to incorporating an entire closed system of food production and water collection, this DVD has something for everyone. It is the most comprehensive yet compact instruction I have seen for becoming more self-reliant from the standpoint of a homesteader.
Water collection and treatment systems, garden success, rabbit and poultry production, home butchering, benefits of having dogs, food forests and edible landscaping, solar food dehydrators, contour mapping . . . the list goes on.
The DVD itself is about 2 hours long and is very easy to understand. The DVD is broken up into 9 main chapters and is further divided into sub-chapters making it very easy to go back and locate any particular topic to watch again.
Obviously it would take much longer than two hours to go into the detail necessary to understand all of the subjects on the DVD, and so an excellent resource CD is also included. There are 64 PDF documents included on the CD. Some documents, such as the one that instructs how to make a spray to get rid of fire ants, are only a few pages in length, but others, such as permaculture and rain water harvesting, approach 100 and 50 pages, respectively. Other documents include subjects such at catfish ponds, companion planting, rabbit and poultry butchering, hide tanning, compost tea, solar food dehydrator construction, homemade vegetable oil, water treatment, contour mapping and many others.
Learning something on your own invariably involves much trial and error . . . well, Marjory and her family have endured many of these errors and she goes through great lengths to point out the right and wrong ways.Read more ›
Overall, an excellent, highly useful production done by a quite clearly sincere, dedicated, informed and deeply grounded family. Highly recommended.
But that is not a review, is it?
There is virtually too much information on this one DVD. She needs to break down each subject and make a DVD just on that one subject. Every subject she covers is a great introduction but just not enough meat.
I saw the miniture cows, but no explaination on what she uses them for. Nothing that produces milk? No butter, cream, milk, etc. for this family?
I also know there is a much faster way to kill a rabbit and a lot less messy if you bleed it out before you butcher it. And what does she do with the fur? How does she market it?
I appreciate all the information I did get, just not enough of it. I LOVE the newsletter, guess the price was worth it just to get that!
She is very candid about the fact that some lessons were learned the hard way and she takes every opportunity to advise you on what she now understands would be a better way than what she did. I saw Marjory's place when she was dealing with the failure of many of the first orchard trees she planted. Four years later, watching the DVD, I was astounded to see the progress she has made and how much better everything looks. Her solutions to the problems of growing fruit trees in Texas are impressive--she didn't give up and was willing to change direction when her first plan didn't work. By studying this video, you can avoid those costly and time-consuming mistakes.
Both the video and the CD are jam-packed with information--much more than can be absorbed in a single viewing. This will become a frequently revisited resource. The pacing is excellent. You get enough time with each point to really see and understand what Marjory is saying but not so much that your attention can wander.Read more ›
