Who hasn't daydreamed at one time or another about selling produce at a farmer's market, keeping chickens, or planting an orchard of fruit trees? Inside every do-it-yourselfer is a longing for a more independent lifestyle and the satisfaction that can come from getting your hands dirty while turning some earth.

Whether you're thinking about a second home in the country, starting a part-time farm, or going back to the land, Living on an Acre is the classic USDA handbook, offering a comprehensive and fully updated approach to:

-considering the benefits of rural versus urban life
-what to think about when remodeling an older house
-how to build a barn
-growing for self-sufficiency versus growing for profit
-beekeeping
-raising livestock
-land conservation
-and much more!
