Rooster Crows Productions, 2010, 110 minutes DVD, plus resource CD

DVDs and Videos Formerly called: "Food Production Systems for a Backyard or Small Farm"

Nearly two hours of video packed with information, plus another CD dedicated to information and resources. Good production qualities and uplifting music - well-filmed and well-edited. We also like that they are fully biointensive in their approach.

Growing food in central Texas is not easy - that is where this DVD and success story comes from - if they can do it there, you can be successful where you are. They achieve a rare feat - every on-line review is excellent, and a surprising number say they have bought copies for their friends and whole families. DVD, plus bonus CD.

This video set is for those seeking self-reliance in growing food. The DVD was developed by a family that depends on these systems for a large part of their diet.
