Such self sufficiency is largely the result of basing their farming practices around intensive pasture management Pioneered by such luminaries as Allan Savory, Greg Judy, and Joel Salatin, the tenets of holistic grazing employed mostly by larger scale commercial operations have been adapted by the Doughertys to fit their family s needs In The Independent Farmstead, The Sow s Ear model for regenerating the land and growing food the best you ever tasted is elucidated for others to use and build upon. In witty and welcoming style, The Independent Farmstead covers everything from choosing a species of ruminant and incorporating it into a grass based system to innovative electric fencing and watering systems, to what to do with all of the milk, meat, and, yes, manure that the self sustaining farm produces Within these pages, the Doughertys discuss how to Find and improve poor, waste, or abused land and develop its natural water resources Select and purchase the appropriate ruminant for regenerating your farmstead Apply fencing strategies and pasture management basics Implement basic, uncomplicated food processing, including large and small animal butchering and cheese making and Integrate grass, gardens, and livestock to minimize or eliminate the need for off farm inputs As the Doughertys write, and people today are feeling the desire for clean, affordable food, unmodified, unprocessed, and unmedicated and the security of local food sourcing for ourselves and our children The Independent Farmstead is a must have resource for those who count themselves as part of this movement both new and prospective farmers and homesteaders, and those who are interested in switching to grass based systems Best of all it s the kind of rare how to book that the authors themselves view not as a compendium of one size fits all instructions but as the beginning of a conversation, one that is utterly informative, sincere, and inspiring.
