Product description

From the Back Cover

Your Success Depends on Your Timing

Whether it's pruning your apple trees or tuning up your tractor, knowing when to do each chore is key to a well-run farm. Ann Larkin Hansen divides each season into early, mid, and late sections and details what needs to be done during each to keep your garden, field, pasture, orchard, beeyard, barn, coop, equipment shed, woodlot, and wildlife habitate in good order. After setting seasonal priorities, every chapter examines a specific topic – such as cover crops, honey bees, and making hay – that's especially relevant for that sub-season. This practical, informative volume also provides plenty of room for your own record-keeping.

About the Author

Ann Larkin Hansen is a homesteader and a small-scale organic farmer. The author of The Organic Farming Manual, Finding Good Farmland, and Electric Fencing, Anne has lived on a small farm in northern Wisconsin since 1992, where she manages a small orchard, a moderate garden, 40 acres of tillable acreage, another 20 acres of rough pasture, about 120 acres of woods. She has sold hay, eggs, pork, and chickens in the past, but her main cash crop was always beef cattle until three years ago, when she switched to custom-grazing dairy heifers for a nearby organic dairy farm. She has been a journalist for nearly 30 years, primarily for magazines publications such as The Country Today, a state-wide agricultural newspaper in Wisconsin, and Mother Earth News.
