We are very fortunate to have a library with some very interesting books. Shortly after we moved here I found this book and read it with delight. It helped with how we might want to layout our homestead for efficiency as well as gardening. It affirmed what I was doing right and made me rethink a few things too.
If you are just starting to layout your homestead or looking to purchase land for a homestead I would recommend reading this book. It helps you evaluate the land for what your needs will be. Since we live on family land that was not a need for us. We just needed to learn to work with what we had in the best way possible.
While I had the book I scanned in many pages for reference later as there was ideas that I just wouldn't be able to apply until a later date.
