At the Machine Shed we are dedicated to the American Farmer and believe things should be simple. The basics of gardening, harvesting and processing your own crops, supporting local farmers and markets have always been part of our values.

We are sharing ways to preserve your abundant harvest by canning, freezing and drying.  In this e-book you’ll find delicious recipes, step by step demonstrations and adorable printable labels.

We hope this becomes a simple reference for you to enjoy the year-round benefits of your garden and locally grown foods.
