Inhaltsangabe: This book relates the history of a small farm, including the changes in the land, the flora and fauna, and the people residing there. Beginning with the days when the land was hunting grounds for the Kansa Indians and then the Delaware Reserve, this is the story of the forty acres of degraded prairie in northeast Kansas that the author and her husband purchased in 1976. Since then, the farm has been in the forefront of the organic, sustainable, and local foods movements, returning to its roots as a diverse family farm. The book documents the economic and agricultural changes that the land has endured and gives hope for a new agricultural future, with small farms once again contributing significantly to the local food supply. The many historic photos illustrate how the farm and its occupants have changed over the last 140 years.
Über den Autor: The author and her husband have lived on Hoyland Farm since 1976. They are engaged in organic fruit and vegetable production and have been part of the burgeoning interest in local foods, marketing both through farmers markets and a cooperative CSA. Since their service in the Peace Corps from 1970-1973, they have been committed to sustainable farming and living.
