Details

This award-winning book addresses the needs of people who want to take control of the food they eat and the products they use—even if they live in an urban or suburban house on a typical-size plot. It shows homeowners how to turn their garden into a sustainable and self-sufficient "homestead" for raising livestock and providing homegrown food including fruits, vegetables, honey, eggs, milk and meat.

Backyard Homesteading also provides practical instructions for preserving food, making beer and wine, making soap, and more. Well illustrated with new photographs and illustrations, this revised 2nd edition provides important new information on attracting pollinators, and an expanded section on raising chickens. Dave Toht, a former contractor with decades of hands-on experience, fondly remembers his first house located in the sometimes frigid, sometimes frying American Midwest.  Built in 1854, it was loaded with opportunities for caulking, glazing, weatherstripping and insulating. 

He has written or edited more than 60 books on home repair and remodelling.
