In the preparation of this study, the writer has endeavored to include all necessary materials that will be helpful to the part-time farmers of Williamson County, Texas. Soil and man, it may be assumed, are among the most valuable possessions of this nation. Any movement which leads to the better development of either is worthy of consideration. Such a movement is part-time farming as a business for small farmers. Part-time farming is a way of life in which the family lives on a small farm but draws its income from two or more sources, one of which is the farm. The other may be a job in industry, or a profession, or work on other farms in the community. In some cases, the outside income is from investments or a pension. Many people work full-time in a city but live in the country, perhaps doing a little gardening and keeping a few chickens. These people are more properly called rural residents than part-time farmers, but there is no sharp line of distinction between the two.
