Ahhhh! Fall! It’s such a welcome relief from the heat of summer. It’s a time of plenty and a time of preparation. It’s a busy time and a hopeful time as food for winter is stored and gardens are planted to sleep before the new growing season.

For preserving the garden’s bounty, learn the best heat sources for canning in this last segment of our canning series. Also, learn how to keep your food and family safe by knowing the signs and symptoms of botulism and how to avoid this disease altogether.

Whether you’re busy taking the kids to sports practices and games or working around the homestead, our easy and delicious soup and bread recipes will make sure everyone has a hearty meal to keep them going.

Before winter sets in, make sure your driveway and farm roads are in tip-top shape by using the proper tools and techniques for the job. And, stay warm as cooler air moves in by exploring the best wood stoves for off-grid living.

As you’re cleaning up your gardens from summer crops, why not save a spot to plant some saffron bulbs so you have access to this expensive and rare spice. It may even add some unique zest to your farm goods for sale!

Keep your livestock and their barns protected by learning the health threat posed by mice and how to get rid of rats naturally by using rat-hunting dogs.

As fall calves are being born, know when to intervene and not to intervene so that mom and calf are safe. And, if you’re considering starting beekeeping, learn how to find a mentor and benefit from their advice and experience.

Whew! That’s quite a list!

Last, but certainly not least, take some time to rejuvenate yourself and enjoy the beauty of fall.
