The Incurable Longing for A Farm of One's Own : A Memoir

Book - 2011

Rate this:

With humor and poise, Jenna Woginrich describes her adventurous self-education in homesteading. Poignant offbeat observations on learning to farm by trial and error punctuate the story of her quest to find a permanent home for herself and her livestock: chickens, geese, sheep, ducks, rabbits, a goat, and a turkey. Alone and on a shoestring budget, Woginrich takes on cranky neighbors and small-town politics without ever losing her trademark humility or comedic style.

Excuse me while I go buy a farmette in Vermont because this book really did give me an incurable longing for a farm of my own. It's funny, wry, and full of interesting anecdotes that kept my attention on every page.
