  • STOREY'S GUIDE TO RAISING MEAT GOATS

    You too can raise meat goats. Small and artisanal farmers looking for a profitable specialty will find that compact, friendly and efficient meat goats don't require large amounts of browsing land, and they can thrive on plants that other livestock find inedible, such as nettles and thistles.

    Demand for chevon has increased in the last years, and imports from overseas have doubled in the past decade. The market is expected to grow by 10 to 15 percent annually in the future. Goat meat is the fastest-growing meat business in North America. Chevon is a low-calorie, low-fat meat.

    In this book, author Maggie Sayer will guide you through the basics of breed selection, buying, housing, feeding and breeding goats for meat.

    Storey's Guide to Raising Meat Goats is a great resource for experienced and beginner farmers.

    About the Author:

  • SURVIVAL: A PREPPER'S GUIDE TO LIFE AFTER THE CRASH

    Should a national disaster occur, how will you respond? What will occur when critical societal services cease to function? As a prepper, you will likely be ready to hole up and live off of your stored supplies, at least for a while. But what do you do during that time? What are your next steps? And how do you defend yourself against others who have not prepared for such a disaster?

    Survival covers all the situations that you may face when the lack of governmental infrastructure leads to social upheaval and chaos. Because most of the population is unprepared for a disaster of any kind, this book gives both the trained and untrained prepper valuable information needed to have any chance of survival in a world where organized government assistance may not be available. Importantly, it details the crucial steps you need to take in addition to doing everything other survival manuals advise. These critical tips go beyond stockpiling food, water, and weapons.

    Offering battle-proven advice, author Steve Mattoon explores what it takes to survive alone versus in groups, each approach presenting its own advantages and challenges. Discover how best to defend yourself, what to use, and how to most effectively use the tools you have at your disposal. Whether you find yourself in a rural area or an urban jungle, this book will prove an essential addition to any prepper’s bug-out bag.

  • SWALLOWED EMOTION LOOSE LEAF TEA

    Have you ever struggled with things you would like to say but can’t, in a job or family situation, perhaps? These pent-up feelings or swallowed emotions can cause a particular kind of stress on the nervous system. It can be difficult to relieve the strain without a little help, which is just what this tea is designed to do. Swallowed Emotion loose-leaf tea includes oat tops, catnip, and rose petals to help prevent the need to blow up or choke on your own frustration+. Enjoy this tea blend for a bit of peace; it isn’t good to keep it all in!

    How to Use:
    Each container of Mockingbird Meadows’ loose-leaf tea comes with a reusable muslin tea bag, so you don’t need to worry about finding or buying a strainer. To make one cup of tea, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin strainer, and submerge the tea bag in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, covered. Remove the tea bag, and enjoy. To make 1 quart of tea, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin bag and submerge in 1 quart of hot water. Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make your herbs last even longer by re-steeping each bag a few times before composting the spent material and then rinsing your muslin bag.
