Meet the author of the beloved bestseller The Dirty Life, Kristin Kimball, as she presents her new beguiling memoir about the delicious highs and excruciating lows of life on Essex Farm, a 500-acre draft horse-powered farm that produces a full diet for a community of 250 people. The Dirty Life was her memoir of her farm's startup year. Good Husbandry takes readers through five subsequent years on the farm - a good year, followed by three difficult years, ending on a high note with another good year. It is a story of animals, plants, food, accidents, neighbors, children, marriage, farmers, floods, plagues, births and deaths, defeats and victories, all set in the midst of abundance. Book groups, memoir lovers, and sustainable food enthusiasts will all love it!
