The Shelf2Life Farming: Crops and Livestock Collection is a unique set of pre-1923 manuals that discuss the business and technical aspects of agriculture. From detailed overviews on how to grow broomcorn, onions and flax to how to run a successful poultry and dairy farm, these volumes provide age-old techniques that may still prove valuable to modern-day farms. Completing the collection are photos of newly invented farm machinery, sketches of livestock and detailed instructions on how to create an ideal environment for grape growing, both indoors and outdoors. The Shelf2Life Farming: Crops and Livestock Collection allows farmers, scientists and horticulturists an opportunity to dig into the late 19th century to learn how farms operated during a period of rapid agricultural development.
