Growing a Farmer: How I Learned to Live Off the Land | [Kurt Timmermeister]

Growing a Farmer: How I Learned to Live Off the Land

When he purchased four acres of land on Vashon Island, Kurt Timmermeister was only looking for an affordable home near the restaurants he ran in Seattle. But as he slowly settled into his new property, he became awakened to the connection between what he ate and where it came from: a hive of bees provided honey, a young cow could give fresh milk, an apple orchard allowed him to make vinegar.

Publisher's Summary

When he purchased four acres of land on Vashon Island, Kurt Timmermeister was only looking for an affordable home near the restaurants he ran in Seattle. But as he slowly settled into his new property, he became awakened to the connection between what he ate and where it came from: a hive of bees provided honey, a young cow could give fresh milk, an apple orchard allowed him to make vinegar. With refreshing honesty, Timmermeister details the initial stumbles and subsequent realities he faced as he established a profitable farm for himself. Personal yet practical, Growing a Farmer will entirely recast the way we think about our relationship to the food we consume.

    "The author ran out of stories..."

    This book could have been a short story. He bought a property then he bought some cows... done... ..
    There was about an hour talking about cheese.... No, no not how to make it... just about the different types of cheese....
    Buy Growing Ground.. Much, much, much better...
