Delight Directed Homeschooling: Farm Science

We moved to a mini farm about 5 years ago because I wanted my boys to experience farm life.They have learning so much caring for animals (horses, goats, chickens)  and having a vegetable garden. (While I learn patience from lousy Internet connection).

If you can’t move to a farm the second best thing would be to visit one and read this adorable charming book Farm Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of Country Life with your children.

If you live on a farm or in the city you will enjoy this delightful book. It explains things like the difference between a weanling and a yearling, or a farrow and a barrow,   tractors and pigs to fences, hay bales, crop rotation patterns, and farm tools, and mush more.

 Julia Rothman gives a richly entertaining tour of the quirky details of country life. From the shapes of squash varieties to the parts of a goat; from how a barn is constructed to what makes up a beehive, every corner of the barnyard is uncovered and celebrated. A perfect gift for gardeners, locavores, homesteaders, and country-living enthusiasts alike.

  1. Thanks Robin! I love this book, perfect for starting out another gardening and chicken raising season. We live on a acreage in a farming area of Central Texas. I'm not sure you could call it a mini-farm, but we do have a chicken coop and fenced area for animals and a growing garden area. We've been raising chickens for the past 4 years and continue struggling with how to make life more secure for them with the wildlife that surrounds us. Lots of heartache over lost chickens! The drought in Texas last year killed our garden, but we're going to try again this year! May all you put your hand to prosper!
