From the Back Cover

The Best Breakfast You'll Ever Eat, Courtesy of Your Backyard Animals:
  1. Gather fresh eggs for fluffy omelets.
  2. Stuff homemade sausages with meat.
  3. Fill your omelet with tangy, creamy cheese.
  4. Stir sweet honey into tea or coffee.
  5. Fry a steak or bacon as a savory side.
  6. Top off your meal with a cold glass of milk.
Breakfast isn't the only meal you'll enjoy from your backyard farm...
Imagine the satisfaction of feeding your family wholesome eggs, milk, meat, and honey produced by animals raised organically and humanely in your backyard. On as little land as one-tenth of an acre, you can raise healthy, productive barnyard animals and take a big step toward food independence.

  • Raise chickens in brooder boxes
  • Determine the freshness of eggs hidden in the backyard
  • Roast a duck or goose to perfection
  • Make goat-milk yogurt
  • Interpret everyday sheep behavior
  • Harvest honey
  • Raise your own Thanksgiving turkey
  • Manage your beef cattle to produce the best-tasting meat
Includes Full-Color at-a-Glance Breed Guide
