Foxfire is up to 12 now... they put out a new one every few years. GET THEM! If for nothing else it's an incredible history lesson for those who
can't imaging life without a cell phone.
As for other magizines.
Mother earth news is still good, if a bit yuppified IMHO
Countryside & small stock Journal also excellent.
Backwoods Home another good one
Ive seen a new one called hobby farming or something like that, haven't bought an issue yet.
Backwoodsman magazine is ok... but I prefer the ones with a more agricultural slant like the above.
If your a novice at raising critters, the Storey's Guide to Raising ... (Chicken, poultry, hogs, beef cows, horses, etc...) book series can get you
up and running in no time.
Storey's Basic Country Skills has a bunch of info on just about any homesteading topic you can think of.
The Encyclopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery is another good one.
Another place you should check out
