in Short

For anyone interested in practical advice about farming, check out the small farmer’s journal

The journal comes highly recommended by two of our own: Allan Carlson and Katherine Dalton. Below is a paragraph from the journal’s web-site.

More like a community odyssey than a periodical, Small Farmer’s Journal’s large, beautiful format is packed to over-full with more information than you might find in three or four conventional magazines. Supported 100% by its readership, this folksy and feisty publication, a true clarion of free speech in the best old sense of the phrase, is a vibrant and exciting platform for engaging farflung ideas about anything pertinent to the small family farm experiance. Livestock, Crops, Barns, Farming Systems, Equipment, Recipes, Kids pages, Marketing, Poetry, Stories, and Political Updates; IT’S ALL THERE!

Small Farmer’s Journal is superb. Reminds you of the other America. By the way, here’s a query from a friend who is a subscriber to that periodical:

“Any thoughts on raising turkeys? I am thinking of getting two. They are just in today at he feed store.”

This person already raises a few chickens successfully. Anyone got any useful advice?
