NOFA Guides Set
A series of 8 guides originally published by NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association and sold on this website), on organic principles and practices for both the beginner farmer as well as established farmers looking to convert to organic, or deepen their practices. Each book is 100 pages, but the information is weighty; the guides use a strong whole-systems farming theory behind their practical advice, as well as offer historical information, further resources, detailed appendices, and profiles of various organic farms across the Northeast. Now available at Chelsea Greens website.
