    Hi folks...I'm a newbie here but not to homesteading/micro-farming/prepping. I sorta shy away from the term "prepper" thanks to the TV show "Doomsday Preppers"...heck, I don't even own a single piece of camo wear!...but my family and I do try to live as self sufficiently as possible. We raise a few veggies, some small landowner style livestock, and are in the process of firing the power company. I hope to get some ideas here and maybe contribute some back as well.

    Have a great day!

    Glad you joined the monkey @Bob_Hayles Micro-farming, that is a new term. Sounds like something people would do in their suburban backyard. Do you do this?

    Yes, but its not in a suburban backyard...same thing as homesteading, really. I think I made the term up for the books I write...which are directed towards beginner homesteader types. "Micro-farming" sorta helps them bridge the easy, suburban life they are leaving and the roll-in-the-mud-with-the-pigs life they are getting themselves...happily...into.
