The essential resource for modern homesteading, raising chickens, and growing and preserving foods, The Encyclopedia of Country Living covers how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, make sausage, can peaches, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, build a chicken coop, catch a pig, cook on a wood stove, and much, much more. This comprehensive resource is the most authoritative guide available to leading a sustainable lifestyle and living off of the land.

Carla Emery started writing The Encyclopedia of Country Living in 1969, during the back-to-the-land movement. She continued to add content and refine the information over the years, and the book went from a self-published mimeographed document to a book of 928 pages.

This 40th Anniversary Edition reflects the most up-to-date resource information and is the most personal version of the book that became Carla Emery's lifework. It remains the original manual of basic country skills that have proved essential and necessary for people living in the country, the city, and everywhere in between.

Complete self-sufficiency may seem out of reach, but for more and more of us, increasing our self-reliance as much as possible is the order of the day. Incorporating dairy goats as the centerpiece of a diversified homestead can be the key to achieving this goal, and Raising Goats Naturally will show you how.

By working with nature, you can raise dairy goats and produce your own milk, cheese, meat, fertilizer, leather, fiber, and soap -- all without relying on drugs or following the factory farm model. By observing your own animals closely and educating yourself about their specific needs, you can create an individualized plan for keeping them healthy and maximizing their productivity. This unique, fully-illustrated guide will teach you to help your herd thrive with:

  • Breed-specific descriptions to help you choose the right goats for your goals and lifestyle
  • Detailed information on housing, fencing, breeding, health, milking, and nutrition
  • Complete recipes and instructions for making your own cheese, dairy products, and soap, as well as cooking with goat meat.
Packed with personal experiences backed up by expert veterinary advice and scientific studies, Raising Goats Naturally brings together a wealth of practical information on raising goats for the love of it and using their milk and meat to become more self-reliant.

Deborah Niemann is a homesteader, writer and self-sufficiency expert who has raised livestock for over 10 years. The author of Homegrown and Handmade and Ecothrifty, she presents extensively on skills for living a self-reliant life.

The cow is the most productive, efficient creature on earth. She gives you fresh milk, cream, butter and cheese, and promotes human health and happiness. She helps the homesteaders and small farmers who offer her bounty up to the community with a chance at turning a profit. She provides rich manure for your garden or land, and enriches the quality of your life as you benefit from the resources of the natural world.

Originally published in the early 1970s as The Cow Economy and reprinted many times since, Keeping a Family Cow is the book that launched thousands of holistic small-scale dairy farmers and families raising healthy cows in accordance with their true nature.

This Chelsea Green edition of a nearly 40-year-old classic has been revised and updated to incorporate new information on the raw milk debate, the conversation about A1 vs. A2 milk, totally grass-fed dairies, practical advice for everyday chores, updated procedures for cow emergencies, and more.

The book offers answers to frequently asked first-time questions, such as: "Should I get a cow?" and "How much space do I need?" In addition to answering these important questions, the book provides extensive information on:

  • The health benefits of untreated milk
  • How to milk a cow effectively and with ease
  • Choosing a dairy breed
  • Drying off your cow
  • Details on calving and breeding
  • The importance of hay quality and how to feed your cow properly
  • Fencing and pasture management
  • Housing, water systems and other supplies
  • Treating milk fever and other diseases and disorders
  • Making butter, yogurt and cheese
Keeping a Family Cow not only has stood the test of time, but it remains the go-to inspirational manual for raising a family milk cow-nearly 40 years after its first publication. Joann Grohman has a lifetime of practical experience that has been bound into this one volume and presented in the spirit of fun and learning. She started milking cows in 1975 and says she can no longer imagine life without one. Health and happiness can't be teased apart, Grohman says, and a family dairy cow supports both of these essential life qualities.

The backyard chicken is the new "it" pet-and with good reason: These birds are personable, beautiful and (mostly) low maintenance. But they're not without their quirks and sometimes puzzling behaviors.

That's where the experts at MyPetChicken.com have a beak up on the competition: They hear from chicken keepers daily and offer advice about common mistakes and pitfalls that occur when raising a flock of chickens in the backyard. And customers tell them that the advice they most appreciate is actually how not to raise chickens, what not to do, and why not to panic.

My Pet Chicken Handbook helps potential chicken owners decide whether chicken keeping is right for them, how to make the best choices for their situations, how to start planning for the new pets, and-most importantly-how to head off potential trouble before the chicks arrive. Detailed care instructions for baby chicks and mature hens help to ensure a friendly and enjoyable flock. Covering both the good and the "oh no" experiences that beginners and avid backyard farmers experience, topics include choosing coops, planning a daily routine, learning about sanitation practices, and discovering signs of distress. Then the joy of chicken keeping comes full "ovoid," with 50 recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all featuring the incredible and versatile egg. You'll have at your fingers delicious instructions for cooking up everything from homemade egg noodles and sesame mayonnaise to a vegetable frittata and caramel custard.
