How-to Wisdom from The Elliott Homestead
eBook
A fresh, new guide to the backyard lifestyle

Whether you want to dabble or immerse yourself completely in the do-it-yourself, back-to-basics lifestyle, Welcome to the Farm is a comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to growing the very best food right in your own backyard. Shaye Elliott takes readers on a journey that teaches them how to harvest baskets full of organic produce, milk a dairy cow (and make butter), plant a homestead orchard, can jams and jellies, and even raise chickens and bees. From her experience running The Elliott Homestead, Shaye provides all the how-to wisdom you need to know about:
  • The benefits of a home garden
  • The basics of seed starting
  • Building your own greenhouse
  • What belongs in the winter garden
  • Canning, freezing, and dehydrating techniques and recipes
  • The pros and cons of caged vs. free-change chickens

  • Raising animals for meat
  • Making your own cider and wine
  • And so much more!
