As the title of the book suggests, this is not a guide for those who want to become full-time, year-round farmers. It’s for those who want the ground they live on to nourish their bodies as well as their spirit.” (The Daily Progress)
Detailed but never excessively so, and richly illustrated with color photos, the Levatinos' book is a useful manual for would-be hobby farmers and a world of entertainment for readers with a passion for going green or simply with fond recollections of farm life.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)
in this book, they provide tips for everything from growing your own food to choosing the right blooms for your garden to running your farm as a business for additional revenue.” (North Jersey Record)

Have to say that the first bit of advice in the intro was perfect. It is so easy to be overwhelmed. While I have been raising cattle and gardening for many years the small farm aspect is a new adventure. I purchased this book to seek out other experiences.
