About the Made at Home book series

A new series for living the good life!

Father-and-son team Dick and James Strawbridge have long lived the good life on their small acreage, and now they're sharing their years of knowledge and experience with readers via their Made at Home series of books. This exciting collection draws on the invaluable wisdom they’ve gleaned while producing an abundance of good things to eat and drink: organic fruits and vegetables grown, juiced, fermented and preserved; pigs smoked for ham, sausages, salamis and bacon; a mixed flock of birds used for eggs and eating; and bees raised for honey. It's an enviable lifestyle driven by a desire to eat well every day.

And it doesn't require a lot of space. Made at Home contains numerous adaptations to urban and suburban life. Plants are grown in small lots and pots, chickens are kept in backyard pens, and meat items are smoked in the backyard. It’s proof positive that anyone can live the good life.
