Farmers Read Too, Sometimes

In Uncategorized on April 19, 2009 at 12:25 pm

It is not easy to find extra time with two children under age five, multiple jobs between us and a small farm.  Once in a while, though, it is absolutely essential to clear your head by reading a book, whether you have the time, or not!  Recently I  have fallen in love with these two:

ON THE FARM by Jimmy Doherty.
It is a fabulous book with stunning photography — it is full of real insights by a real (really good looking) guy who has all of the same real experiences that we do in rural Western Massachusetts.
It chronicles Jimmy Doherty’s efforts to set up a farm in the Suffolk countryside, where he rears top-quality traditional breed pigs.

Another book that I have made time to read is decidedly different: THE HARD WAY by Carol Lea Benjamin.  Confession: It is a mystery, but — the author is a noted dog trainer.  Readers will absolutedly fall in love with the investigators trusty partner, Dashiell.
