Publisher's Summary

Become a farmer without leaving your backyard!

Have you ever dreamed of growing your own food? Between the fresh air, the exercise, and the savings on rising grocery prices, there are so many great reasons to garden. But you can go one big step further when you start your own mini-farm.

With backyard farming, you use the land you already have to grow your own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. Some people even raise livestock at home! A mini-farm is easy to start and doesn’t have to be expensive. You’ll eat healthier, help the environment, and relieve stress.

The Self-Sufficient Backyard is a detailed resource for new backyard farmers. No matter where you live, what size your yard is, or how much gardening experience you have, this audiobook will guide you through the steps of creating your own mini-farm. The sections within will show you where and how to start, lead you through the most common challenges, and teach you how to create the perfect homestead garden for your backyard.

In The Self-Sufficient Backyard, you’ll learn:

  • How to assess your land to decide what plants (and animals!) to raise
  • The best growing methods for small spaces, like companion planting and intercropping
  • Tips to water, fertilize, and keep away pests to make your plants as healthy as possible
  • The most popular crops for backyard farmers, from peas and carrots to turmeric, ginger, and fenugreek
  • How to plant fruit trees and grow apples, cherries, peaches, or apricots in your backyard
  • Advice to consider raising chickens, goats, pigs, fish, bees, or even llamas
  • The steps to harvest your produce the right way, then store and preserve the delicious result
  • Ways to extend your growing season so you’ll have fresh food in the spring, fall, and winter
  • How to sell your extra food, turning your mini-farm into a lucrative small business
  • And much more!

It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, brand new, or experienced, or if your farm is a hobby or a business. This guidebook has detailed, comprehensive advice for every step of the way; from starting your backyard farm to becoming self-reliant. The land you already have can become a sustainable farm or even a source of income. Your dreams of fresh, local food can come true when you pick up The Self-Sufficient Backyard.

Stop dreaming and start farming, using the land you already own. Get your copy of The Self-Sufficient Backyard now!
