Description Description A practical yet pretty small-farm planner that serves as a guidebook, record keeper, and task tracker for small-scale farmers and backyard gardeners everywhere. 

From Jill Ragan, author of The Tiny but Mighty Farm, comes the resource backyard farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders have been waiting for! This complete, well organized, and easy-to-use logbook for recording all of the activities, tools, and to-dos required to run a successful home farm is organized by your garden’s cycles, not calendar dates.

Divided into seasonal sections—from early-season straight through to post-season—you’ll easily be able to track everything from planting dates and chore lists to plant yields and harvest times, no matter what climate and zone you grow in. Whether you use your garden’s yields yourself or sell it to others at a farmer’s market or CSA program, this planner is an essential tool for success.

Included in each seasonal section are: 
  • Seed, plant, and tool inventory record sheets
  • Budget tracking and expense logs
  • Seed starting and planting schedules and charts
  • Pest and disease trackers
  • Monthly chore checklists
  • Supply needs lists
  • Variety reviews 
  • Plus, plenty of room to record all the little details a gardener needs to keep track of!

Additional resources include goal tracking for 1, 5, and 10 years from now, recording pages for soil test results, places to track amendments and fertilizers used, advice on trellising systems, cover crops and crop rotation tracking, and end-of-year crop evaluations. With handy grower’s tips sprinkled throughout, The Tiny Farm Planner is a complete system for recording all the data, thoughts, and inspiration you need to keep your garden productive and healthy from year to year.

Jill Ragan

Jill Ragan is a small farmer and online educator, balancing life as a wife and mother of three beautiful girls. Her journey into growing food began when she saw a largely unmet need in our society; with broken food systems, unfortunate waste, and an overall lack of connection to our Earth. She started growing food for her family instead of sourcing it from the grocery store, reducing waste as much as possible, and learning how to compost. Shortly thereafter, Jill began teaching others how important it is to do the same for themselves. She started documenting the simple changes she was implementing to contribute to the health of our planet and has since grown an extensive following on YouTube’s Whispering Willow Farm channel.

Jill now grows food full time on a much larger scale on her family’s tiny but mighty home farm. She teaches others daily and takes advantage of any opportunity to demonstrate how even the smallest environmental action can make a significant impact. With passion and personality, Jill is committed to sharing her hard-earned knowledge with anyone and everyone she can.
