Urban Homesteading Magazines

If you grow your own food, keep chickens and/or are trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle, there are several magazines I have come across that may interest you…

Backyard Poultry -  is dediated to more and better small-flock poultry. This magazine covers all the basics of keeping chickens in your own backyard.

BackHome Magazine – is a hands-on guide to sustainable living that covers many topics including: gardening, composting, livestock and living off the grid.

Hobby Farms – is a magazine for rural enthusiasts, hobby farmers or those who are just passionate about the country. Topics include small farm equipment, livestock, cooking, crafting and home arts.

Urban Farm – is a new magazine that is coming soon. It is from the editors of Hobby Farm Magazine and it sounds like it has potential. The websites says that it will cover "sustainable city living". Topics include how-to projects, profiles of urban farmers, recipes and reviews of innovative products. I will be watching for that one.

Bee Culture – is a magazine that I have not seen in person, but a friend of mine recommended it for anyone interested in keeping their own bees. It covers basic beekeeping, honey recipes, new products and the latest info on pests and diseases.

    I’m happy to report we only subscribe to 2, and not all, of those you listed…LOL! We do, however, also sub to Mother Earth News and get my FIL’s Backwoods Home and Countryside magazines too. We’re such magazine addicts. ;}

    Am taking a break from my bloggy-break *grin* and reading some blogs. Enjoying all the wonderful photos on your blog!
