Fresh the Backyard Grill – Growing a number of the food that your family consumes is a terrific way to spend less and eat on a budget. As food prices continue to go up, more families turn for a way to access premium quality food without breaking the bank.
Food cost concerns and the desire for higher quality meals has fueled the rise of backyard farming. There are still an estimated 20 million acres of lawns in North America. We invest millions of dollars a year developing a mono-crop (grass) and pouring compounds on it to make it greener and destroy unwanted plants. If we farmed our yards, we’d greatly boost the availability of local food and decrease food costs. This trend of garden farming is growing with homeowners.

Some households are farming simply to grow food. These little scale farms vary from simple raised bed gardens to elaborate mini-homesteads with several kinds of animals, bees and ponds. Any family can start some sort of small backyard farm. This might be bigger or a container garden. It might even include backyard chickens or a beehive!
