Farming on the Wild Side
by Nancy & John Hayden
I've been intensively no-till farming 3 acres for a decade. This book would have saved me years of time and thousands of dollars, doing stuff that I didn't need to be doing. I've read all the books.... Watched hours of youtube.... NOTHING beats the wisdom found in 'Farming on the Wild Side'... Nothing.
