At last! For the first time since the HAVE-MORE Plan was published way
back in the 1940’s, a fellow named Richard W. Langer has come up with a
365-page book that really introduces a beginner to small-scale farming.
Wanna raise your own fruit, nuts, berries, vegetables, grain, chickens,
pigs, ducks, geese and honeybees? GROW IT! tells you how to get started, we like it, and here’s another chapter from the book.
