This is a wonderful memoir of a young couple who begin their first year of farming in upstate New York. Their idea is to get people in the community to buy into their farm (pay a fee). For this fee they will provide most all the food a family could need - vegetables, meats, herbs, eggs, dairy (and all that comes from that). They use no fertilizers or bug spray. It is the story of all the hard work of farming and the rewards. The fee the members give pays for equipment, seeds, etc. A wonderful idea - I loved the book.
