If you’ve ever wondered what motivates farmers, how they manage to make a living through the long winters, and what is involved in running a farm besides growing plants and tending animals, you’ll enjoy New Hampshire Women Farmers.
On the successful farms featured in the book, New Hampshire Women Farmers: Pioneers of the Local Food Movement, women are the face of the farm, innovators who come up with the value-added products and know how to sell them, and they are the conservators of the land.
Helen Brody and Leslie Tuttle have done a wonderful job exploring one of the most dramatic developments in Northeastern agriculture-the rise of women as energetic, successful principal farm owners and operators. Anyone concerned about strengthening our local economies and expanding availability of fresh, wholesome foods will be encouraged by this work.
--Steve Taylor, farmer, writer, and former New Hampshire commissioner of agriculture
