Farm Hand's Companion-An Online Companion to the Self-Sufficient Farm or Homestead

Hello there!
Welcome to Farm Hand's Companion.
From articles, posts, and photographs to the Farm Hand's Companion Show (see the latest episode below)...FHC is an online periodical of sorts dedicated to preserving, celebrating, and developing old-fashioned skills of the traditional farm.

The Latest Video: “What On Earth Am I Doing?” - Episode 13 of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show

I’m pleased to tell you that the first episode from volume 2 (or season 2, if you will) of the show is now ready for viewin’. It’s episode 13 and also the first installment of a number of gardenin’ and crop growin’ shows I’ll be eager to produce in comin’ months. This particular episode sets the stage and attempts to define what we’re talkin’ about when we say “farming” or “gardening” (since everybody views both from their own unique perspective). I hope you enjoy it, and that it gives you a little boost as you get out into your gardens and fields this spring. Go ahead and mash here to watch it!

The Farm Hand's Companion Show with Pa Mac

In a video blog called The Farm Hand's Companion Show, watch serial episodes as I take an undeveloped tract of land and attempt to turn it into a working, traditional farm. Keep up with the progress this year as I'll be clearing land, making some lumber, building a workshop for my tools...and figuring out where to put a few overcrowded chickens. See the latest episode above, or go to The Farm Hand's Companion Show page to watch all episodes. Check back often for the latest shows, or subscribe to get email updates on new shows or posts (up and to the right).

Articles & Photographs About Simple Back to Basics Farming

Gardening, raising livestock, woodworking...you name it...most facets of traditional farm topics will be covered from time to time. Within each of the categories you'll find posts, articles, or pictures that I think you'll like. I'll be posting new ones as often as the farm work permits. So keep checkin' back often for some fresh farm reading!
