This antique text contains a factual account of the experiences of a small family farm and the money they were able to make from it - through economic and prudent farming. Its chief value to the reader does not consist in its details of practice, but in the enunciation and demonstration of certain principles of domestic economy, of universal application. This is a text that will be of considerable value to those who own or are looking to acquire a small amount of farmland to be used as a small commercial enterprise, and is a text that constitutes a worthy addition to collections of farming literature. The chapters of this text include: 'Where Shall We Live?', 'Our First Difficulty', 'Our Second Cow', 'How to Make Butter', 'What we Made by Our Cows', 'Our Pigs', 'Our Poultry', 'Our Losses', 'Our Pigeons', 'How we Cured our Hams', 'Our Bread', 'Our Kitchen-Garden', 'The Money We Made', 'The Next Six Months', and more. We are proud to republish this text now complete with a new introduction on farming.
