I love to read articles & books about poultry raising & other agricultural practices from the past. A friend sent me a link to this blog in the USA. I thought you might like to browse it too.

Snap, Hattie. I love the old fashioned prose that is perfectly logical. Just uses old fashioned words / phrases and maybe too long sentences sometimes.

That video Farm for the Future is fascinating. I have paused it while I attend to some chores but will be straight back asap. Beautiful photography too.
