The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food and Love
by Kristin Kimball
This is an amazing story. A 30-something Manhattan travel writer falls in love with a farmer, moves way upstate in New York (near Lake Champlain) and begins a new-model farm concept: supplying not just vegetables, but a total diet of organically grown food for its paying members. The description of the grueling first year of this never-before-tried plan is both heart-wrenching and uplifting. Author Kristin Kimball gamely coped with and analyzed every new procedure and obstacle that came her way. It was hard to put this book down. Ms. Kimball must be an extraordinary woman!
