Newsflash: Pure Poultry Now Available for Pre-order!

Big, BIG news: I just found out that my sister Vicki’s new book, Pure Poultry: Living Well with Heritage Chickens, Turkeys, and Ducks, is now available for pre-ordering!

Published by New Society Publishers, Pure Poultry is scheduled for release in early November 2013 (Vicki says there’s a possibility it may happen earlier). Click here to go directly to this fabulous book at

Pure Poultry by my sister Vicki!
Pure Poultry, written by my sister Vicki! She also took the cover photo, as well as photos in the book! (In addition to Powell’s here in Portland, it’s also available at Amazon, including a Kindle edition.)

I first told you about this book back in March, here, and also reported on Vicki’s presentation at the Mother Earth News Fair. And you can learn more about the book, Vicki herself, and her off-grid lifestyle with her husband David, in the mountains of Western Washington, on her blogs, Canyon Creek Farms and Pot Pies & Egg Money. You’ll love them!

Pure Poultry is on Facebook!

Book signings: If you own a bookstore, or know of one that would like to invite Vicki to come for a book-signing event, please comment below with your location, contact information, and when you would like her to visit.

The MEN Fair in Puyallup, WA this weekend!

The MEN Fair in Puyallup, WA this weekend!

Oh, sorry, did I forget to mention that MEN stands for Mother Earth News? Oops.

I’m heading north to Puyallup, Washington this weekend to the Mother Earth News Fair, an annual sustainable-lifestyle event at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. And in a random act of selfless sister-promotion, let me say that the primary reason I’m going is to hear my sister Vicki Miller’s presentation on raising ducks.

This is, I believe, the third time Vicki’s been asked to speak at this event; MEN also flew her to Pennsylvania last fall, and she’ll be traveling to Colorado later this summer for yet another presentation. She really is an expert on the topic of raising heritage poultry and pigs. In fact, her first book, Pure Poultry: Living Well with Heritage Chickens, Turkeys, & Ducks, is due out this fall (the link takes you to Vicki’s blog).

And don’t worry, you don’t have to know how to pronounce “Puyallup” to enjoy the MEN Fair— if you happen to be in the area (roughly an hour south of Seattle, not far off I-5), maybe I’ll see you there!
