Overview

Critter Tales: What my homestead critters have taught me about themselves, their world, and how to be a part of it by Leigh Tate

Similar in style to 5 Acres and a Dream The Book, Critter Tales presents an entertaining but honest exploration of the challenges of sustainable critter keeping on a self-reliant homestead: suitable breeds, numbers of animals, housing, fencing, growing one's own feed, health issues, mysterious disappearances and deaths, dealing with predators, critters that won't stay put, and how the animals themselves don't always agree with "the experts." Discusses the various philosophies of keeping livestock, and includes the author's careful research and real-life learning experiences with chickens, goats, llamas, puppies, guinea fowl, cats, pigs, and honeybees on the homestead. Also available as an eBook series.

About the Author

Leigh Tate homesteads five acres in the foothills of the southern Appalachian Mountains with her husband Dan. Their goals are simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant living, and a return to agrarian values. In addition to critter keeping, gardening, food preservation, cheese making, and woodstove cookery, Leigh loves to write about homesteading. She is the author of the popular 5 Acres & A Dream The Book: The Challenges of Establishing a Self-Sufficient Homestead, an eBook series entitled The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos, and Critter Tales : What my homestead critters have taught me about themselves, their world, and how to be a part of it. Her ongoing homestead adventures can be read at her blog, 5 Acres & A Dream The Blog.
