NAUTILUS BOOK AWARD WINNER

"A heartfelt meditation on farm, food, and family…a love story of the land and a life spent caring for it."
—HANNAH NORDHAUS, author of The Beekeeper's Lament

In this love story of land and family, Kayann Short explores her farm roots
from her grandparents' North Dakota homesteads to her own Stonebridge Farm, an organic, community–supported farm on the Colorado Front Range where small–scale, local agriculture borrows lessons of the past to cultivate sustainable communities for the future.
