Letter to a Young Farmer: How to Live Richly without Wealth on the New Garden Farm
by Gene Logsdon, 210 pages, 5¾x8¾, paperback. “Stay small and stay in.” “Never turn your back on a ram.” Words to the wise from Gene Logsdon, self-described “contrary farmer,” one of a proud few who knew there was a better way. In this book, written a few weeks before he died last year, he passes lessons learned and pleasures gleaned from a lifetime of contrary farming on to the next generation, the folks who practice garden farming, who strive to make a living from a few acres through intensive, diversified, organic agriculture, making do and doing well. For Logsdon, and I hope for us, this is the future of agriculture, if it is to have a future. Reading this book is a bittersweet pleasure. -David Shipman
