Review

“bursting with determination and optimism. These essays by beginning farmers are chatty, colorful reports that made me laugh and left me in awe of all the hard work that goes into growing our food. The farmers revel in simple pleasures and big challenges.”

(The Boston Globe)

very enjoyable May 31 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Series of essays by different folks and their trials getting small farms going. By and large one wonders why anyone would go into farming. And yet, it calls to them and drags their sore bums out of bed every day to go and do it again. I thought their essays were very genuine in feel, not sugar coating anything. But they share their inexplicable joy in the face of their trials and their determination to continue on. These are the attitudes that built America.

More honest than polished Aug. 21 2012

Interesting stories from 50 different farmers and producers across America, which could have used a little more editing. Regardless, many stories are at once funny, compelling and insightful into the reasons why Americans everywhere are turning back to agricultural practises as a method of finding meaning and financial stability in the 21st Century.

An honest book.

Loved It March 13 2014
By Oscar's mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave this to the daughter of a friend of mine who is interested in becoming a farmer. It's a relaxing read---great at the bedside table. I loved reading of so many perspectives, and getting to meet so many different types of personalities involved in farming. Oh, if I were only thirty years younger! What an inspiration these people are!!!

What a journey I was taken on, and have many farmers to thank for the travel. I felt I was sitting with each farmer in each mini conversation. Thank you!
