    Gaining Ground Epub º Paperback gaining book, ground epub, Gaining Ground ePUBI'm kind of a sucker for food documentaries but I am so tired of all the horrifying disgusting show it all for the shock value type project Yes it gets that visceral reaction and yes maybe some take a hard look at their habits and start putting their money and support where their conscience is but there's only so much cruelty that I can stomach when it comes to animals And my tolerance is extremely low for it So it was lovely and refreshing and all sorts of happy making that this book was uplifting and light and funny while at the same time being a pro sustainable pro organic farm story It didn't go off on a rant a

    Gaining Ground Epub º Paperback gaining book, ground epub, Gaining Ground ePUBPart memoir part how to this book by Berryville Virginia farmer Forrest Pritchard is worth your time Early on Pritchard makes the case for writing the book the world needs books written about farming I hadn't thought about it before but he is right Pritchard also makes the case for growing and buying local particularly in respect to farmer's markets In fact he saw his farm finally begin to make a financial turn around thanks to the Arlin

    Gaining Ground Epub º Paperback gaining book, ground epub, Gaining Ground ePUBA very well written personal story about keeping the farm and turning it into something uite extraordinary; grass fed no chemicals no antibiotic livestock He sells at farmers markets in the DC metro area Gives one a real appreciation for small farmers and farmers' markets Couldn't help but cheer him on as I read the book During the past two years I have found myself spending timemoney in MOM's and Whole Foods I am alarmed than alarmed in fact by the emptying of the oceans by commercial fishermen I am very concerned by the additives in my food and the antibiotics and who knows what else in my meat products I have not graduated to buying much meat at farmers' markets yet But this book was an impetus to start It is pricy but friend Roger commented the other day that people will go out and spend 10 for a three egg omelet but balk at buying a dozen eggs at a farmers' market for 600Go

    Gaining Ground Epub º Paperback gaining book, ground epub, Gaining Ground ePUBLoved this book The audio version was so easy to follow while tasking I was familiar with much of the basics except farmers' markets as we attended Joel Saladin's farm tour almost twenty years ago and read most of his books For whatever reason that I have never been able to pin down I have been drawn to these farming ways and for a time we had a milk cow chickens a pig and some rabbits and goats If you're not familiar with sustainable agriculture you'll learn a lot from this informative and entertaining book Several laugh out loud scenes and my favorite was about the goat Having animals always provide lots of work but lots of entertainment and memories

    Gaining Ground Epub º Paperback gaining book, ground epub, Gaining Ground ePUBI really enjoyed this book It's a story of how a man took the failing family farm that was kicking out a profit of 1816 and turned a profit by going organic It was fascinating to see all the different steps he took trying and sometimes failing to pull himself up by the bootstraps In the end though he succeeded I wonder if some of the ideas he had would be applicable to our little ten ac
