• CRITTER CONTROL

    The sprawl of suburbia, destruction of wildlife areas, overregulation of game animals, and reduced popularity of hunting and fishing have resulted in more people coming into direct contact with wild animals on a regular basis. In this invaluable do-it-yourself guide, veteran outdoorsman Larry Grupp gives readers a comprehensive toolbox of specific devices and strategies to deal safely, legally and effectively with more than 30 common North American pests, including deer, bears, raccoons, rabbits, beavers, porcupines, skunks, foxes, coyotes, rats, squirrels, bats, birds, fish and reptiles. Understanding these critters and how to best control them is the basis of this information-packed manual. You will learn when to be cautious, when to be accommodating and when and how to take direct action if the animals must be eradicated. The primary tools for dealing with unwanted creatures are fences, repellants, fumigators and traps. Grupp examines each solution and tells the reader how to most effectively and economically use them. He also provides a helpful table for using specific baits and lures to trap various varmints. City and country dwellers alike will find the answers they need to rid their homes and properties of destructive wildlife once and for all.

  • FARMING THE WOODS

    Learn how to fill forests with food by viewing agriculture from a remarkably different perspective: that a healthy forest can be maintained while growing a wide range of food, medicinal, and other non-timber products.

    The practices of forestry and farming are often seen as mutually exclusive, because in the modern world, agriculture involves open fields, straight rows, and machinery to grow crops, while forests are reserved primarily for timber and firewood harvesting.

    In Farming the Woods, authors Ken Mudge and Steve Gabriel demonstrate that it doesn’t have to be an either-or scenario, but a complementary one; forest farms can be most productive in places where the plow is not: on steep slopes and in shallow soils. Forest farming is an invaluable practice to integrate into any farm or homestead, especially as the need for unique value-added products and supplemental income becomes increasingly important for farmers.

    Many of the daily indulgences we take for granted (such as coffee, chocolate, and many tropical fruits) all originate in forest ecosystems. But few know that such abundance is also available in the cool temperate forests of North America.

    Farming the Woods covers in detail how to cultivate, harvest, and market high-value non-timber forest crops such as American ginseng, shiitake mushrooms, ramps (wild leeks), maple syrup, fruit and nut trees, ornamentals, and more. Along with profiles of forest farmers from around the country, readers are also provided comprehensive information on:

    • historical perspectives of forest farming
    • mimicking the forest in a changing climate
    • cultivation of medicinal crops
    • cultivation of food crops
    • creating a forest nursery
    • harvesting and utilizing wood products
    • the role of animals in the forest farm
    • how to design your forest farm and manage it once it’s established

    Farming the Woods is an essential book for farmers and gardeners who have access to an established woodland, are looking for productive ways to manage it, and are interested in incorporating aspects of agroforestry, permaculture, forest gardening, and sustainable woodlot management into the concept of a whole-farm organism.

  • FENNEL HERBAL DIGESTIVE BITTERS

Description Fennel Tonic Bitters are the best variety to start with if you are new to bitters. You will quickly find yourself craving a few delicious drops just for fun! What Are Bitters? Bitters can help you to balance your digestive system+. As a result, they can greatly increase your absorption of nutrients during digestion.
