Welcome “Backyard Food Productions”

Hello all –

I am very happy to announce that ModernSurvivalOnline is now an affiliate for Backyard Food Productions. Several weeks ago I was contacted by them and asked if I wanted to receive a copy of their educational DVD for review and giveaway. Of course I said “YES!” and have received the DVD.

I  have now  watched it a couple of times and am just so impressed. Being someone who did not grow up on a farm – I found this DVD to be tremendously educational. I will be doing a full review on the DVD soon.

This DVD provides creditable information on creating a self-sufficient food producing “model” or “system”. Made by people that actually live life on a homestead – information is well laid out and easy to understand.
