A backyard farm may be one that is maintained without thought of earning income, or run as part of a lifestyle choice. Alternatively, it may be regarded simply as recreational land, to be enjoyed by the whole family, being a place where a few animals are kept, not only for the pleasure of having them around, but also for the enjoyment of what they can produce, be it new-laid eggs, milk for turning into homemade butter, or even honey.
This comprehensive guide is illustrated throughout with full-color photographs and chapters that explain in detail how to grow vegetables, herbs, and fruit. Instructions on keeping bees, chickens, and livestock, and how to minimize pests, will help with ambitious farm projects. The index helps readers navigate through the book to find just the tips to help them get started with their own backyard farming.
