The Contrary Farmer

The Contrary Farmer by Gene Logsdon

Good book about sustainable, or practical, or reasonable agriculture and the benefits of a life lived this way. I think the author would be pleased that my copy of his book has the last 100 pages stained by coffee and several pages stained with dirt and slobber. The coffee coming from a spill while doing some farm related work and the dirt and slobber from a couple of goats that thought the book might be good too.

The best sentence in the book:

"The country is losing its common sense because pompous asses in high places will not allow people to solve local problems in a manner practical for local situations."
