I have recently subscribed to a magazine called "Home Farmer". I got a sample copy somewhere, but I can't remember where - and really enjoyed it. The first "proper" edition came yesterday. It's not in anyway "technical" but the articles are simple and accessible. In the sample copy, there was a recipe for soda bread and instructions on how to make cheese - I've tried the former (very good, too) and hope to get to the latter shortly.

This month's edition exlains how to make butter using 500ml double cream and a 2 litre milk carton; how to make a pork pie; an article on bee keeping, how to install a wood burning stove and loads of other stuff (I haven't finished reading it yet!). Because it's not "technical", it's very encouraging - the aim of the magazine is to let more folk become more self reliant, even if they live in a town or city.

If you see it around, it's worth a look. It's published by "The Good Life Press".

Hey! My kind of magazine! I can not seem to focus to well these days. I like plain old simple!
