For urban and country dwellers alike, a quarter acre is all the space you need to farm all the food you need! Homesteading allows you to feed your family healthy meals harvested right from your own backyard while also reducing your environmental footprint.

Live off the land you have. Plant a successful and sustainable farm--on a quarter acre to a full acre and beyond--where you can raise your own fruits, vegetables, chickens, bees, milk-bearing animals, and more. Local, organic food is attainable to you at a fraction of the cost with your own self-contained operation.

Angela England runs her family's successful, small-scale farm, and she teaches you how you can do the same. Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) guides you through the essentials of planning a small farm--decide what should be grown or raised, and implement proven and sustainable homesteading techniques. Learn everything you need to know to maximize your space, yield, and harvest.

It's not glamorous, but it is rewarding, so prepare to get a little dirt under your fingernails and see what kind of gardening and farming magic you--and your land!--are capable of.
