Good Reading: the Small Farmer’s Journal

I chanced upon an interesting “magazine” a couple of weeks ago called the Small Farmer’s Journal. It’s a larger-sized magazine that is jam packed with informative articles, charts, drawing, photos, etc. It’s published quarterly, and some of the articles in the Winter 2007 issue I picked up include “Horesepowered Vineyard”, “Bread Ovens”, “Open Pollinated Corn” and instructions for how to make a hog feeder, plant trees and windbreaks, and recipes. It also contains plenty of lore, reader letters, essays, cartoons and poetry. It’s a well-rounded read– definitely not a typical magazine that you flip through in 20 minutes and forget about. I’m sure they’ll prove to be valuable additions to my homestead library, and yours. Issue and subscription information can be had at
