This award-winning book shows how to turn any backyard—no matter how small it may be—into a sustainable and self-sufficient “homestead” for raising livestock and providing homegrown food including fruits, vegetables, honey, eggs, milk, and meat.


Author Biography

Dave Toht, a former contractor with decades of hands-on experience, fondly remembers his first house located in the sometimes frigid, sometimes frying Midwest.  Built in 1854, it was loaded with opportunities for caulking, glazing, weatherstripping and insulating.  He has written or edited more than 60 books on home repair and remodeling.
