Now fully illustrated and updated, this 30th Anniversary Edition is a must-have for any agricultural library.

Eliot Coleman's books and innovative methods have helped innumerable organic farmers build successful farms in deep accordance with nature. The wisdom in this seminal book holds true even as the modern agricultural canon has grown--in large part due to Coleman's influence as a wise elder with decades of experience.
