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.

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.

This book gives simple but knowledgable information on homesteading. I particularly liked the section on chickens and fruit orchards but that is what I'm interested in at the moment. I liked that the author added his personal experiences throughout that I could relate too. I will be coming back to reference this one many times.

This e-book is a gem! It is a PERFECT place to start if you are looking at getting some land and learning more about gardening or starting an orchard. Lots of concise info, lots of concise advice. I have read tons of books on gardening, fruits, etc and this is the best and most complete e-book I have seen. I will be buying a paperback copy as well.

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.

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.

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.

Loved this book. It is the absolutely most complete book about greenhouse gardening I have ever read. That being said, I would have liked to see a couple of pictures to illustrate the process but that’s because I am a visual person and I like to illustrate my own books myself.

Firstly, the author, Eric Beuning , cover the topic of choosing the reader’s best option for a greenhouse in his environment as well as essentials like heating, water, and ventilation. She includes the things people don’t commonly think about, like,

“… If it is a particular warm and sunny day you will probably want to deploy some form of screening….” Dawww… Right!!! Otherwise we’ll fry the young plants.

He includes the things people don’t commonly think about, like,

“… If it is a particular warm and sunny day you will probably want to deploy some form of screening….” Dawww… Right!!! Otherwise we’ll fry the young plants.

And also,

“… A properly tended greenhouse is essentially its own little ecosystem. On the one hand it’s handy, that compared to your garden, random bugs, fungal spores and soil borne diseases have a hard time getting in. Unfortunately once they do get in they tend to run wild in the greenhouse’s special conditions!”…”

Ahhh… never thought about that! How does it work?

“… One of the easiest ways for things to get into your greenhouse is on your shoes or tools…”

These few short quotations illustrate already how intelligently this book is written. The author does not stop with describing the process of building or buying & setting up a greenhouse, but includes information how to plants the seedlings outside as well as specific Heirloom vegetable recommendations, including peppers, tomatoes, garlic and cucumber, (all favorites of mine) .

Love this book! I already recommended it to a friend , who shares my passion about gardening.
