2 Books to Read About Backyard Farming

Goat Song: A Seasonal Life, a Short History of Herding and the Art of Making Cheese, by Brad Kessler.
Brad writes " The longer I lived with goats the more connections I saw to a collective human past we've since forgotten, here in North America at least. I saw how so many aspects of our everyday culture arose from a lifestyle of herding hoofed animals".

Based out of Vermont, read how Kessler and his wife started off with two goats and changed their lives.

Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer, by Novella Carpenter.
Very interesting account of an Oakland backyard farmer.
