The Dirty Life

Kristin Kimball was a thirty-something writer living in New York City when she went to interview a farmer for an article. The farmer put her to work and also was handsome and interested. This precipitated a life change, moving to a farm and living with a partner. Kimball and her husband bought their own farm eventually,farmed with draft horses and raised and butchered their own meat. She describes the back breaking labor as well as the pleasures of farm life in this well written memoir, The Dirty Life: On Farming,Food, and Love.
