Recommended Reads

As far as magazines go, there are a a few I want to recommend,
and you might as well subscribe because buying them off the rack
is too expensive. Most of the time, 3 issues will cost a year's subscription, as you
probably well know.

While I like Hobby Farms well enough, it is not really near the informative source
that following magazines are:

LUCAS FARM

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27




"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
