A Breath of Fresh Air
On the farm, May is the month of hope, plans, energy, and joy. From pre-dawn till dusk, farmers tote plants to beds, move livestock to fresh grass, bring early produce to market, repair this tool, fix that fence. Meanwhile, leaves are unfurling and fresh oxygen is surging into the atmosphere. Stop and breathe in that brand-new air, look around, roll and stretch your shoulders . . . and then get back to those chores!
Storey has dedicated the month of May to those who work the land — life-long farmers and beginners alike. Many of our authors are hands-on, hardworking farmers. Whether you have a small backyard farm or you produce food for local or far-reaching populations, our expert authors have information and knowledge that will help you grow your knowledge, skills, and business.
Storey’s Fresh Picks, our ebook farmstand, has a harvest of farm-related ebooks — at $2.99 each — for the entire month of May! We are also running the Farming 101 Giveaway, with a grand prize valued over $475. The contest deadline is May 15, 2013 — click here to enter!
