"And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you."
1 Thessalonians 4:11
Quote of the week...
My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.

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.

Comin' Real Soon...The Farm Hand's Companion Show, Volume One on DVD, and the "Building an Old-fashioned Pole Barn" Book by Pa Mac

There’re no two ways about it… things have been pretty busy around here the last few months. As always, I’m filming more farm and homestead footage, while managing a small farm at the same time (all that while still enjoyin’ my dear family and havin’ the time of our lives!). I'm lookin' forward to presenting the second “volume” of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show, to say the least. I can’t wait for you to see what’s comin’ up!

With the completion of the pole barn workshop in the last show (episode 12), it also brought to an end Volume 1 of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show. And in case some of you might have wondered—yes, this first volume of the FHC Show will be made available for purchase on DVD comin’ up real soon (in time for the holidays). Keep checkin' back here for forthcoming particulars about that.

I'll also be comin' out with my first book called "Building an Old-fashioned Pole Barn". It, too, will be available for purchase real soon, and'll give many more details about pole barn construction complete with photographs, as well as some practical ideas about customizing it for small farm or homestead use.

If you didn't see episode 12, hit on the video here below and enjoy the last show of Volume One called "Finishing Out and Settlin' In".

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, 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!
Look over here to the left and up a bit, then mash on any particular topic of interest to you.
