What People are saying about this

author of The Dirty Life Kristin Kimball
"One of the most optimistic stories in America.The Greenhorns have put together a collection as satisfying as the food these farmers are producing."

“Hooray for the Greenhorns! Networking young farmers from coast to coast, they have become a formidable force in our new agricultural revival, spreading resources, sharing skills, documenting the experiences of young farmers, and advocating for change in our agricultural system. This volume is an engaging and highly readable collection of diverse essays by eloquent young farmers, reflecting upon their experiences and issues they have faced. These essays offer serious food for thought, especially for anyone considering taking up the hoe—no matter whether young or old.”
