This looks like the exact magazine I have been looking for. We just purchased a small piece of property to build a house on in the country and are wanting a tiny farm on it as well. This issuer covers a lot of things I want to know about. If the website had some indication it was secure I would order it online. As it is I will have to look for a copy in stores. I would have also purchase online if you accepted Paypal.
