Publisher's Summary

Earn a killing while living life completely on your own terms!

The art of homesteading is a way to truly return to the land and take your full power back, putting the outcome of your life in your own hands.

No more answering to other people’s ridiculous requests, no more giving all of your energy to things that don't actually spark a light in you.

With the development of some new skills, a brand new way of looking at life, and the tools and resources necessary to generate success from the beginning, you’ll soon find that homesteading is the one thing you’ve always been looking for.

In The Backyard Homestead, you’ll discover:

  • How to best prepare yourself for the homesteading journey before you go “all-in”, and why it’s important to properly inform yourself first
  • The top five ways to prepare your land for success and how you can implement them even with no experience
  • Scientific insight into aquaponics, hydroponics, and other methods that will help you to grow more plants in even less space
  • Why having some animals is a great idea for your land, and how you can also use them to make even more profit
  • 10 of the most powerful ways to make a profit from your homestead

Plus, as a bonus in Market Gardening, you’ll discover:

  • The number one rule to follow when starting your own farm and how you can be sure to utilize it for your success
  • How to get the money you need to start your farm, no matter what your current savings or budget looks like
  • Why there will always be consumer demand for your goods, and how you can best capitalize on this reality
  • Powerful tips and tricks from the professionals who have been out in the fields for decades, guiding you to success every step of the way 
  • And much more!

Living your life on your own schedule and by following your own rules is something you deserve.

Your life is yours for living, so make sure you do it the way you want to!

I want my money back!

I found this book vague, redundant, and nearly useless. I do have a lot of experience and knowledge in gardening and carpentry, and I would even suggest this Book to someone with no knowledge of homesteading, except it falls completely short of providing any useful information. It’s redundancy overshadows any examples or helpful tips with ultimately suggesting that you do your own research. Instead of wasting your time on this book, volunteer for a day at a local CSA farm or greenhouse. I guarantee you will learn 10 times more there than you’ll ever get from this book.

Well done and useful way.

This is one of the best publishing efforts I've ever seen. Kudos to the author and the publisher for a job well done. When you finish listening this book, you'll look at small scale farming in more useful way.

Hopefully grow the healthy fruits and vegetables

This book is fairly easy to follow and enjoyable to listen . I am making a new raised organic garden which I will share my bounty with all creatures. I'm enjoying this book and find it a pleasure to listen and become better educated so I will hopefully not do any harm to the beneficial insects.

This is a great book!

This is a great book! Loved the section that tells you which vegetables should and should not be planted next to one another! It has answered so many of my canning questions, and explains why things go wrong in the canning process.
