Have you heard of Mini Farming? Would you like to find another $10,000 a year in your bank account?
Would you like it to get there in an ethical and environmentally sustainable fashion?
Well, Brett Markham argues that if you have a spare ¼ of an acre of land, you can do just that and his book Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre sets out how you can achieve this.
No Farming Background Required
One thing that we appreciated right away is that Brett’s book is aimed at everyone!
There’s no need for any farming experience (or even any gardening experience) to follow the plan he outlines.
He covers everything you need to get started from how to buy and save seeds and how to plant them and establish raised beds onwards.
You’ll find out how to make compost, how to keep the soil fertile, how to conquer pests and infestations, how to rotate your crops and learn how to plan to make your farm effective all year round.
And There’s More
It doesn’t stop there, either.
Brett wants you to become completely self-sufficient with your ¼ of an acre, so he teaches you how to farm chickens (eggs, yum) and how to can your own food among a myriad of other useful techniques.
The explanations he gives are short and easy to follow and supported by pictures, diagrams, illustrations and much more.
This book is highly recommended for anyone who’d like to transform their life to a greener, healthier and richer one.
