Are you in spring year 2 or 3? The shows have a 2 year cycle. If you are in year 3 or any other odd number, it's the best time to try the mod, because you will get all tips in the order. You will have to open the game once after installing the mod for the config to be created. After that just edit "DisableMeat" and "DisablePregnancy" to true and load the game again. About the compatibility problem, are you using stardew valley 1.2.33? Even if you are, you might no have the same problem as Ginger256, he even removed artisan goods and it still did not work. It's probably another problem with his installation or another mod.
