I read your blog all the time, so I'm not sure why I just noticed this little list! Can you tell me who wrote the book on mini farmning? I would love to read it.

Also, have you ever read any of Joel Salatin's books? They aren't geared towards mini farming specifically, but they are really facinating!

Hi Ali,
Here's the link to the author's webpage. I really liked their book!

I haven't read any of Salatin's book so thanks for the recommendation!
