Book Review Thursday- The Dirty Life


Posted by Angie | Posted in Farming | Posted on 19-05-2011


This week I am reviewing The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I knew as soon as I started reading the introduction that I would love it. Her descriptive details of the food were making my belly growl. Kristin and her husband met and fell in love on a farm. They then decided to move to upstate New York and started their own farm where they now try to provide all of the grocery needs of a family (produce, milk, meat, flour, and others).

After reading the book I had a better idea of what I wanted to do with this blog. I loved hearing about their struggles and successes in starting up a farm, and falling in love. I realized that I wanted to hear more from her everyday. So that’s what I’m hoping to provide on this little blog. You will hear about our excitement from getting a new animal, our failures (in just about everything new), and the love that we have for God and each other.

If you enjoy farming books you will love this one.
