The Complete Guide to Self-Sufficiency

Backyard Farming: Homesteading is the all-in-one guide to successfully turn a rural property, suburban home, or urban dwelling into a productive food oasis.

Homesteading covers a broad range of important topics, including finding and developing the perfect property, which produce and livestock combinations are easiest to start with, learning how to preserve the harvest, among many others.

Homesteading, in conjunction of the comprehensive Backyard Farming series, takes the anxiety and guesswork out of enjoying the backyard farming revolution. Homesteading is your first big step to joining the growing movement of these homemakers looking to a healthier, happier way of life—and it starts right in your own backyard.


Kim Pezza grew up among orchards and dairy and beef farms having lived most of her life in the Finger Lakes region. She has raised pigs, poultry and game birds, rabbits and goats, and is experienced in growing herbs and vegetables. In her spare time, Kim also teaches workshops in a variety of areas, from art and simple computers for seniors, to making herb butter, oils, and vinegars. She continues to learn new techniques and skills and is currently looking to turn her grandparents’ 1800s farm into a small, working homestead.
