One Acre and Security

Author: Bradford Angier
Publisher: Stackpole Books
ISBN: 9780811766340
Release Date: 2017-09-15
Genre: Sports & Recreation

A passport to freedom that shows how to find fun, food, shelter, and income on land that may be within easy-driving distance of the city and suburbs. Why work a lifetime, asks Angier, to accumulate enough money to retire from the rat race during the last, least active years of life, when a little ground can provide healthful, relaxed living—now—and income too? One Acre and Security explains how “three-squares-a-day” and money to spend can come from the earth with instructions on: sheep or pig farming, raising bees for honey, keeping dairy herbs of cows or goats, making money with herb culture, raising and selling rabbits and earthworms, running a poultry farm, raising fish, frogs, and turtles for profit and fun. Angier, the man who has done it all himself, shares too what he has learned about some of the ways to eat from nature’s free banquet table, how to stretch country-living with hikes on famous trails or on any untrammeled path, where to find the best hunting and fishing, and how to catch bigger, healthier fish. “This book is written for those who want to move—not to the distant wilderness—but just far enough away from the smog and the screaming traffic to be where meat will be theirs for the raising, fish for the catching, fruit and vegetables for the picking, fuel for the cutting, home for the satisfaction of building…breathing cleaner air, beholden to none, doing what they want to do most and giving it their best,” says Bradford Angier in One Acre and Security…
