Peek inside the journal of a young suburban family who made the leap to a hobby farm, only to find themselves returning to the city less than two years later. What follows is the chronological, no-nonsense account of what the Rose family faced and how they handled it. Sometimes they made mistakes; other times they found help and kindness in unexpected places. Inside you will discover stories and tips on: finding good land, developing ponds, rotational cattle grazing, how to not get ripped off, farm trucks, tractors, and other engines that fail, Jersey cow milking, good (and not-so-good) country neighbors, seeding, permaculture, gardening, chainsawing, and feral hog avoiding. The information may just save your life, or at least prevent you from making the same mistakes they did.
