Favorite Things Friday: Books and a Giveaway!

There are so many great helps out there for the farmer. The internet is super, you can find just about anything you are looking for. I tend to be a bit 'old fashioned' I suppose, in this department of my life also, because I love a good, informative book!
There are SOOOO many out there right now. Books that are encouraging, inspiring and make you feel like you can get out there and make a difference in your acreage, be it .5 acres or 500.
Here are a few of my favorites right now.

I just got my hands on this book and it is awesome! I love the pictures and all the basic information on a WIDE range of subjects.

Joel Salatin is my farming hero! He has taken us back to common sense and helped us remember how farming is not industrial, it is practical and it is a good way to live!

Ashley English has some lovely and informative books out right now. They include some interesting recipes and some great step by step instructions for learning.
The Encyclopedia of Country Living is AMAZING! It has a WEALTH of information and just about everything you might have a question about... the book has your answer!

And last but not least!!!

I was contacted by Skyhorse Publishing and received this incredible book.
