‘Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers’ Movement’

“Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers’ Movement” (Storey) is 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. Listen to a young woman in Washington state: “If I had known then what I know now, I wouldn’t be trying to farm with draft power. But I’ll readily admit that buying my first team of draft horses was the very best mistake I’ve ever made.”
