super informative

We have a smaller (fourteen acre) homestead and have a lot of animals. We used to be city people. This book has helped us transition nicely into homesteading and has been so informative and helpful! When we acquire this knowledge, we are a lot less scared

This book was packed with all sorts of tidbits

! This book was packed with all sorts of tidbits and tips on so many different animals. Housing you need to think of, various nutrition facts to think about, butchering your own meat, the list goes on and on. Would give this as a gift for those thinking of starting their own little farms.

Good information! BUT...

This was an informative set of books, however, the narrator was like listening to a robot. Very very monotone! He would be an excellent narrator for bedtime stories

It’s very through yet is not written

It’s very through yet is not written like a textbook. It’s written in an easy to read format where there are blurbs of information separates by pictures and boxes of other info to make the reading anything but monotonous.

This book is bigger and much longer than


This book is bigger and much longer than I was expecting. It goes animal by animal, with a few lumped together when it makes sense, and goes over all the basic things you would need or want to know before starting out with that animal. It’s not something that I would use as a reference book or even as a guide once an animal has been acquired but it’s invaluable as a source of information on each animal.

There is even a project to build


There is even a project to build a bee hive along with some basics of taking care of your bees and wise advice as to where to seek more knowledge about bee keeping.

Spike really goes to some great lengths to show you how to do things right and build so that your creations will last the tests of time.

This book seems to have a lot of information

This book seems to have a lot of information that will be helpful. I'm pretty good at building my own projects so I think some of this info may not be as useful to me as the other books I received (The Backyard Homestead Farm Animals and The Backyard Homestead). Either way...this book is great and is worth purchasing!

This has such an amazing breakdown of the projects that you need for a homestead. The projects are cute and practical. It even has a breakdown of all the materials that you need for each project which is obviously helpful!
