I really want to try this even though we have more than an acre available to us. It’s an illustration from a book called The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It, by John Seymour. Here’s the link for the Mother Earth News article that features an excerpt from the book. Though it hinges upon having a dairy cow (which while I LOVE milk and cheese, I don’t want to go there), the author does give a few alternatives. It would be fun to fence off an acre and lay it out like this if we could. Maybe it would be more manageable. Hmmm, always food for thought.
