This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to independent farming, with information on all aspects from selecting a farm to growing strawberries. With a wealth of invaluable information and useful tips, this timeless handbook will be of considerable value to both prospective and existing farmers, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of agricultural literature. Contents include: “City Experiences—Moderate Expectations”, “Practical Views—Safety of Investments in Land”, “Resolved to Go—Escape from Business—Choosing a Location”, “Buying a Farm—A Long Search—Anxiety to Sell—Forced to Quit”, “Making a Purchase—First Impressions”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on homesteading.
