  • The dirty life

    By Jennbec
    Breathtaking. Poetic but realistic reflection on farming, especially animal husbandry.
  • Now I want a farm!

    By Nfairb
    Interesting book, really makes me want to have a cow and live on a farm!
  • The Dirty Life

    By Carogriff
    What an enjoyable read! I felt welcomed into Kristin's life in the first page. Well written, smart, very real look at a life most of us came from generations back but would never choose for ourselves now.
  • Magnificent book

    By andymacdougal
    I may be a bit impartial because I grew up in Essex just down the road and around the corner from Essex Farms. I was my honor to cook their rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding, too. It doesn't seem like 8 years have passed since the "new farmers" rolled into town...most of the locals chuckled. I knew and could tell that they were onto something! There was a certain innocent magic to Kristin and Mark that just told me they were going to be incredibly successful. And boy, are they ever!! In her book, Kristin does a fabulous job of describing their experiences and lifestyle in such a way that it will appeal to everyone. Love, food, country life, great people, there is something amazing happening at their farm, and, YOU NEED TO READ ABOUT IT!!
  • The Dirty Life

    By River Man
    If you wonder at what's lost but can be regained, this is a great read celebrating life, work and love.
  • A fantastic read

    By SoccerDad 99
    I became immersed in the journey, the project, the ups and downs of both nature and man. Beautifully written. Meaningful to anyone who has as least tended a large garden, and more so to those of us who have hayed, mowed, repaired broken equipment and lastly cared for a plethora of 4-legged friends.
  • Highly entertaining

    By Mikesdoc
    Anyone who enjoys Thoreau will enjoy this book. I just wish it had been made into a series. There were ways it could have been done. I just wish after there becomes a cult-like following of the book (and there will be) the author and her husband follow it up with a cook book. Easy style to read without being insulting.
