The ultimate practical dream book for living in the country. When the farm is a lifestyle, not just a way to earn a living, that's hobby farming. Most of us want to live a sustainable life in which we protect the land and keep it safe from development and overproduction. But we can take this a step further by learning how to grow and savor what we can produce ourselves-while still maintaining an alternative career to fund this passion. Michael and Audrey Levatino here share how to:
- Grow your own food.
- Raise chickens, horses, llamas, bees, and more.
- Sell the bounty in your local community.
- Balance a professional career with a rural lifestyle.
The Joy of Hobby Farming is a book that will excite armchair farmers and inspire any do-it-yourselfer.
