Publisher's Summary

Start an organic chicken farm, make your home self-sufficient, save a lot of money, and start a successful business!

Do you want to grow organic food, and raise healthy livestock like chickens?

Have you always wondered about the phenomena of sustainable living?

Would you like to transform your home into a self-sufficient, eco-friendly paradise?

Poultry meat, and especially chicken, has been heavily analyzed these last few years, and the results were defeating. It turns out, most chicken farms use a lot of antibiotics and other drugs to stimulate growth, fatten the animals up, and ultimately make more profit. Eating that meat, poisoned with chemicals, can seriously damage your health and even cause cancer.

So, what can you do?

Have your own chicken farm!

It might sound like a complicated thing to do, but with this book, you’ll enjoy organic, healthy chicken meat and eggs in no time! This bundle will show you how to grow quality chickens in even the smallest backyards and how to become a homesteader, even if you live in a city and have little or no space for agriculture.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How to choose the breed of chicken to farm, based on whether you want to grow them for eggs, meat, or both
  • What to look for when purchasing that first flock of birds
  • How to prepare their habitat and what it has to contain for successful and organic farming
  • How to feed and grow healthy chickens without drugs and other damaging compounds
  • How to raise chickens in any surroundings, including backyards
  • Numerous professional tips for raising, housing, and caring for your flock 
  • Everything about backyard homesteading, what it entails, and how to become a homesteader
  • How to start this project the right way, by following important homesteading principles
  • How to homestead if you live in the city or own a very small backyard
  • Techniques for gardening and producing fruits, vegetables, and mushrooms
  • Building tips for everyone who want to make their own sheds and furniture
  • And much more!

Just imagine what amount of money you would save every month if you didn’t have to buy your food, wines, or pay your energy bills! Join thousands of people living a healthy, eco-friendly, fulfilling life!

Great starter book for Homesteading and raising

This audiobook is fabulous. Every chapter is informative and so helpful! I've been trying to plan a garden to feed our family for several weeks and I've been sifting through information from all across the web, but this has everything I need all in one easy to read place.This would also be amazing to have on paper version in the event of a crisis. It describes how to do all of the things described for free or as low cost as possible.I do feel that this book has prepared me well also for keeping chickens, with good advice of everything required to raise chicks and chickens well. I am sure that I will keep coming back to this audiobook as a reference support throughout my chicken adventures.I'm very happy with my purchase, just wish I'd had it sooner!

I wish I had this book years ago!

This audiobook was exactly what I needed. As someone who stumbled upon homesteading videos on YouTube, I became interested and wanted to know what it all really entailed. This book breaks it down nice and easy, and discusses topics I'd never thought of before, like growing the ingredients for brewing my own wine and beer, as well as making my own herbal teas. While using older, more traditional methods, this book gives you simple directions and recipes. It covers a lot of different topics and gives you an overview of the basics. This is a fantastic book also for those interested or new to chicken keeping and well-seasoned chicken companions alike. It does more than cover the basics - it gives real world advice on the realities of bringing feathered ladies and gents into your home. I’ma very happy customer.

Really helpful

Excellent book that deals with these 2 topics in a comprehensive way, it was very useful for me to understand some details on the growing of vegetables.The book uses simple and understandable language, I finally understood the best way to build a small farm outside my home which was always my dream. This listening has helped me not to make trivial mistakes and to optimize all breeding and cultivation processes.

I love this! We are city kids who have always wanted to move to the country. We moved abruptly over last Christmas with some years of research but no hands-on experience. This is helping make sense of everything we have read, listen and when to do it!! Very helpful!!!

Exactly what we needed!

So far this audiobook has been a monumental support. We are new owners of a smallish farmstead. This audiobook manages so much about all aspects of farming, I think it will be my immediate reference source for farm-related information.

The Audible is Interesting.

The opinion of having so much food in such a little space is so splendid that it completes the audiobook worth having, even if it's to just dream a little. It's difficult work to cram so much into a small space but for many, that's all you've got.

Incredible Book

This book even gives advice on livestock, from picking the animal, building the cages, caring for it, and eventually butchering it. Just a very thorough, great, book.
