Storey Publishing is a local publisher based out of North Adams, MA. They have been publishing wonderful how-to books on do-it-yourself titles that are down-to-earth and always inspiring for over 25 years! Topics range from gardening, cooking, crafts, nature science, animal care, farming, traditional skills and home improvement.
Over the years my personal library has included many of their titles that are now dog-eared and well worn from reading and referencing; including: Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal, Gail Damerow’s Barnyard in Your Backyard, Mike & Nancy Bubel’s Root Cellering and Phyliss Hobson’s Making & Using Dried Foods. All great titles I’ve referenced either for family minor illnesses, the best way to raise our small backyard flock of chickens, how to put up onions and cabbage from the farmer’s market for the winter, and advice on dehydrating culinary herbs and locally picked apples. Discover their upcoming releases here. Each title is packed with fresh new ideas about gardening, horses, cooking, crafts, livestock, building, and more!
