Anneli Carter-Sundqvist, the co-owner of Deer Isle Hostel, recently released her new book A Homesteader's Year on Deer Isle. This collection of blog posts originally published on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS website takes readers through a whole year of living on an off-the-grid homestead.

Carter-Sundqvist and her husband, Dennis, grow a year's supply of food, raise pigs and chickens, and produce their own building materials, garden amendments and energy. Here, she recounts the day-to-day stories about digging out new garden space, swimming in the pond, chasing the pigs and preserving 150 heads of cabbage. She also shares her political and philosophical reasons for why, in the 21st century, homesteading and living off the land is not just something from the past but rather a sensible, dignifying and viable option for the future.

ALL FLESH IS GRASS

Gene Logsdon
Paperback

Price: $19.95

Amid mad cow scares and consumer concerns about how farm animals are bred, fed and raised, many farmers and homesteaders are rediscovering the traditional practice of pastoral farming. Grasses, clovers and forbs are the natural diet of cattle, horses and sheep, and are vital supplements for hogs, chickens and turkeys. Consumers increasingly seek the health benefits of meat from animals raised in green paddocks instead of in muddy feedlots.

In All Flesh Is Grass: The Pleasures and Promises of Pasture Farming, Gene Logsdon explains that well-managed pastures are nutritious and palatable; they’re virtual salads for livestock. Leafy pastures also hold the soil, foster biodiversity, and create lovely landscapes. Grass farming might be the solution for a stressed agricultural system based on an industrial model and propped up by federal subsidies.

In his clear and conversational style, Logsdon explains historically effective practices and new techniques. His warm, informative profiles of successful grass farmers offer inspiration and ideas. His narrative is enriched by his own experience as a “contrary farmer” on his artisan-scale farm near Upper Sandusky, Ohio.

All Flesh Is Grass will have broad appeal to the sustainable commercial farmer, the home-food producer and all consumers who care about their food.
