Welcome to the Farm by Shaye Elliott. Published by Rowman & Littlefield

Elliott started looking for farm animals before she even had a farm. When she and her husband decided to make their dream a reality, they went whole hog, with sometimes hilarious results. Here is the story of their farm and how they created it, along with instructions for anyone who might like to follow in their footsteps. From planting and harvesting a garden, canning and preserving, keeping bees, starting an orchard, and raising and butchering animals. I have to admit I skipped the animal part ( I don’t like to eat anything with a face), but the rest of the book is just gorgeous, photos, drawings and information to bring your own dream to life
