More and more Americans are wanting to grow their own foods, raise their own livestock or simply be less dependent on the marketplace for those items. In an attempt to reach those goals one can spend a lot of time and effort. The good folk who bring you these Storey guide books have indeed did their homework. My wife and I have been small acreage (10 acres) farming now for 40 years. Even with the school of 'on the job training', we still reference our Storey guide books. From the half dozen rabbits, 40 or so chickens, milk-cow(s) and grass fed beef, or 3 to 6 pigs we raise each year, we trust the wisdom of the Storey guide books. They are dependable, well written, and more than that, very interesting. We highly recommend them to anyone who is willing to work with farm critters. The information Storey's guide books contain will make your life, and that of your friends behind the gates, much more enjoyable.
