The book of the farm

with one comment

With Victorian Farm and Edwardian Farm showing up recently at Cold Antler Farm and at Small Measures, I started rewatching the shows, which I’d seen bits and pieces of already.  It’s an interesting look at how life used to be, and one that I imagine that I’ll write about later.

What really struck me about Victorian Farm, though, was the use of their “bible,” the text “The Book of the Farm”, which appears to be a very comprehensive guide to farming.  While old, it looks to have a lot of useful information in it, and I was delighted to find a PDF copy (only 737 pages) from the Open Library.  So, if anyone’s interested, it’s readily available.
