We got a copy of the Acres U.S.A. 2010 Catalog. On page 3: "Acres U.S.A. is a family-owned business that's been a leading voice for organic farming and living for almost 40 years."
The Catalog is full of excellent and sometimes hard to find references on Eco-Agriculture, Crops and Livestock, Insect & Pest Control, Biodynamics, Lunar Planning, Gardening, Eco-Philsophy, Homesteading, Human Health and more.
The mix of knowledge is ancient and modern, hands-on and spiritual. This catalog bears witness to the movement toward Small Farms and People Living in Harmony with the Land. Holding it in one's hands is about holding Hope right there.
We have been reading the Catalog and drooling. We already have several of the references and they are among our favorites. With limits on spending, we surely cannot order (or get access to) all that we want, but step by step we will try to find a way.
