New APPPA Book Presents the Best of the Best

The best APPPA Grit! articles from the last ten years have been gathered under one cover. Raising Poultry on Pasture: Ten Years of Success has over 130 illustrated articles. It's divided into fourteen chapters and is fully indexed for ease of reference. The enormous range of viewpoints and techniques, not to mention the APPPA spirit of starry-eyed pragmatism, make this book unlike any other.

Raising Poultry on Pasture was compiled by APPPA board member and former APPPA Coordinator Jody Padgham.

The material in the book goes all the way back to the earliest days of APPPA Grit in January 1997; the newest material is from the summer of 2005. Anyone with even a mild interest in outdoor poultry will find this book indispensable. Readers with half a dozen hens in their backyard will find the book as useful as those with commercial operations. The practical aspects of keeping poultry outdoors simply aren't covered anywhere else. Broilers get the most attention in the book, but egg production has an entire chapter to itself, and another chapter covers turkeys, ducks, and geese.
