Projects for the Farm
By Grit Staff | Dec 27, 2013
Use the wood from your farm to build a charming pasture gate. A rock wall can be a beautiful – and functional – addition to your homeplace. Create a peaceful retreat in your backyard and try landscaping with rocks. Extra spigots around your property are a huge help when watering plants and livestock. These tips will help you get started on your own DIY water lines. Learn how to more effectively manage your farm’s woodlot to maximize the resource. Take a look at some barn quilts that represent rural heritage across the country. Then, you’re in for a real treat when you make these Amish Honey Bars. Ranger Cookies, also known as “Ranger Joe” cookies, are easy, tasty treats and perfect to tote along in your lunch. Finally, get to planning next year’s garden with Grit’s Food Garden Planner.
