The Owner-Built Homestead


This book was put out in 1977 but the information is still valuable for anyone interested in alternative farming techniques. The Kerns are advocates of a no-till approach to crops and give substantial background on soil and the impact of tilling. The book also covers raising animals, ponds, greenhouses, and fences. It isn’t the book to consult for information on becoming certified organic, generating power, or running a CSA.
