Mark, you and this guy could make a project out of the now out of date "Home Food Systems: Rodales Catalog .." https://www.amazon.com/dp/0878573208?tag=boing05-20
It's been out of print for ages. With sections of bee keeping, aquaculture, canning, drying, goats, chickens, and Tools.
It's in desperate need of a update with new 'cool tools'. It's one of the books I refer to again and again. If you don't have this one, borrow or buy one and spend a night with it.
