The Farm Wife

“Your Successful Farm Business” is one of Joel Salatin’s latest books.

One of my favorite writers on anything farming has to be Joel Salatin. Joel’s books are chock full of information. Quite often he adds a humorous note – just consider the title of one of his books, “The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs,” and you will understand what I mean.

In his latest book, “Your Successful Farm Business,” Joel gives you a little over three hundred pages of down-to-earth information from Working Landscapes (Chapter One), through Elclectic Awareness, Living Frugally, a Can Do Entrepreneurial Spirit and all the way to New Opportunities that can help make your farm more profitable. These are all things that any size farm can do – from just an acre or two all the way up to 100 or more acres.

Community Enjoys Cookie Class

On July 11, a group of home bakers gathered at the Mansfield Main Library to learn the art of decorating cookies. The class was taught by Lartoshee Edwards, library clerk. The objective for the class was to inspire people to start baking and be creative in experimenting in the kitchen.

In developing a painting, you must prep the canvas. So the class began with discussing the necessities for creating the perfect cookie and design concepts. Next, as in painting, the class began mixing icing, coloring it and tinting it to match the color palette. Finally, the moment arrived for hands-on experience. Everybody enjoyed themselves adding sprinkles, sugar pearls and colored sugar to their edible artwork.
