Publisher's Description

Plan and plant a successful and sustainable backyard farm — from a quarter acre to a full acre and beyond — right in your own backyard. By raising and harvesting their own fruits, vegetables, chickens, bees, milk-bearing animals, and more, people are growing locally, sustainably, and at a fraction of the cost.

Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) is written by someone who has planned and run a successful small-scale farm. Angela England guides you through the essentials of planning a small farm — deciding what should be grown or raised, implementing proven, sustainable techniques, and maximizing yield and harvest.

Author Bio

Angela England is the author of Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less), a Living Free guide, and a freelance writer who, along with her husband and four children, cultivates a half-acre farm in their backyard where they manage to raise diary and meat goats, keep enough chickens for eggs and free-range poultry, and foster an intensively productive garden for fresh fruits and vegetables. With dirt under their fingernails, they started by cultivating a small garden and eventually took on chickens and goats. With time, their garden grew and they expanded to parent bees, cultivate fruit trees, and manage a larger plot while shedding the conveniences of urban life. Angela is the Plants and Bulbs feature writer at Suite101 and founded the Untrained Housewife website in order to guide others in recapturing the lost arts of rural living. She also manages and maintains the Blissfully Domestic community with an additional 300,000 page views monthly and contributes to other sites and forums on a regular basis. She lives in Catoosa, OK.

    We have way less than an acre (a nice size backyard for a city neighborhood and we have a home owners association); the great thing about this comprehensive book is that it address both of those issues. It provides tips to utilize the space we DO have to work with. Backyard Farming on an Acre (more or less), even helps those with much less..such as apartment dwellers.

    It provides steps for beginners, as well as tips for more experienced people. The book is organized in five distinct sections, so you can step into each area at whatever level you are. (And skip areas that are not of interest or not a good fit for your situation - our neighbors nor homeowners association would appreciate us keeping goats or roosters for example - yet that is a small part of a BIG, wide-ranging book. There is something here for everyone.

    The book has a FANTASTIC index so you can jump into more healthy living, better cost savings and move (be it baby step or giant leap) toward a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

    This is the perfect gift book for those wanting to make positive changes...and perfect for your own New Year's Resolutions toward the same in any area from growing more of your own food to raising animals, bees (not me, but my brother does this) or candle making or lost arts.

    Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) is exactly what I've been looking for.

    This book is loaded with top notch, practical information that would greatly benefit the novice gardener who's just getting started to the seasoned backyard farmer who's been searching for usable strategies to take him to the next step.

    I highly recommend this book.
