If you ever need an uplifting and hilarious book about farming, this is it. David Schafer is one of the most accomplished farmer/entrepreneurs having started a small, highly successful farm and then moving on to create Featherman, one of the go-to small farm equipment companies.
From a journalist in Manhattan to one of the most inspiring farming operations in the country, Kristin Kimball tells the story of her move from the city to Essex Farm on Lake Champlain. Using the power of draft horses, Essex strives to provide a full and interesting diet yearround(!) to its CSA members, including meats, dairy, fats, vegetables, grains and flours, etc. All animals are pasture-raised, slaughtered and butchered on-farm. Quite an amazing story and an even more amazing farming operation!
