2023 Books Of The Month

January 2023

The Backyard Homestead Seasonal Planner

by Ann Larken Hansen

Read it on Kindle

We chose this book for January because it’s great for helping us keep on track with the tasks that need to be done on our homesteads each season. If you’re a gardener, keep livestock, have an orchard, or are a beekeeper, you’ll find this planner to be an invaluable tool to make notes, time out planting and harvesting windows, and manage a wide range of tasks on a diverse homestead or small farm.

Listen to our interview with Ann Larken Hansen, author of the Backyard Homestead Seasonal Planner, on The Coop With Meyer Hatchery podcast.
