Homesteading and Sustainability

Scythes and Manual Mowing:

A Primer on the Selection, Use, and Maintenance of the American Scythe--Our self-authored guide on the subject. The only publicly available resource on the subject, to our knowledge!

The Scythe Connection--The most comprehensive resource on the continental European pattern scythe, written by the incomparable Peter Vido. While we respectfully disagree with his low estimation of the American pattern scythe, his work developing the art of the European scythe has formed as the foundation or springboard for many mowers the world over. An excellent resource for those just getting introduced to scything, but be cautious not to take his teachings as gospel--especially regarding anything pertaining to the American pattern.

One Scythe Revolution--The best USA-based retailer of continental European scythes, run by our friend Botan Anderson. While we, again, disagree with their evaluation of the American pattern, they are a great resource for procuring the continental pattern and its trappings. We have been working closely with them to arrive at a comprehensive document comparing and contrasting the design principles of Continental European and American scythes.

ScytheWorks--The best Canadian source for a Continental European scythe, run by Peter Vido's brother, Alexander.

Rabbitry Resources:

Bunny Rancher--Run by family of ours, and selling vital tools for efficient meat rabbit processing. Home of "The Ballista" spring-powered bolt gun for rabbit and poultry dispatch.

Rise and Shine Rabbitry--Friends of ours, and fellow meat rabbit breeders, Rise and Shine Rabbitry's blog is abound with information for those looking at getting into raising meat rabbits for the home table!

Other Stuff We Like

Tools and Gear:

Altai Gear--Manufacturers of some pretty dandy urban/tactical boots that we enjoy for daily wear. Professional look, but built around the performance of a lightweight hiking boot and reinforced with SuperFabric. Appropriate for daily wear while enhancing readiness of response in the event of an emergency.

Predator Tools--The most bombproof shovels and spades on the market. Often imitated but never duplicated, Predator Tools offers some real humdingers for folks looking to break some serious ground! A small USA-made company putting out a quality product.
