Présentation de l'éditeur

"A compellingly delightful read!" - Mildred Kalish, NY Times Bestselling Author

When Tim and Liz Young decided to leave their comfortable suburban life and become first-time farmers in rural Georgia, they embarked on a journey that would change their lives.The Accidental Farmers reveals how the couple learned that hamburgers, bacon, and eggs don't come from the supermarket but from real animals that forge emotional bonds with their human caretakers. Seeking a middle path between a meatless lifestyle and the barbarism of factory food, Tim and Liz endeavored to create a sustainable oasis where rare breed animals and humans live together searching for something nearly lost by both humans and the animals...how to live naturally off the land.

He shredded his business cards and said goodbye to the conveniences of urban life, to become a farmer and homesteader. Today, Tim is an award-winning cheese maker and author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story of moving away from the busy corporate world and connecting with nature 21 décembre 2012
Par David Sweet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated this book! I often dream of doing what the author and his wife did; stepping out of the busy corporate world and moving to the country and raising my own food. For others who share this same dream you’ll also get a lot from the book. For those who don’t dream this, it’s still an interesting story about a big career conversion and the information contained in the book about the conditions that much of our food is raised in is informative and thought provoking. I enjoyed reading about the author’s decision process to move to the country. He shares vividly his experiences, good and bad, of getting the farm going and the struggles he faced trying to raise animals naturally which for generations now have been raised in unnatural settings (for example, pig mothers no longer having the instinct to care for their babies). Through his book Tim Young has provided me with information and ideas that I certainly will use when someday realizing my own dream of moving away from the city and raising/growing my own food.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you think you want to be a farmer, read this...also, if you want to know more about your farmer. 11 mars 2011
Par Tricia Houston - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just finished the book at 4 am this morning, after picking it back up at 2am and not being able to put it down.I found it compelling reading, sweeping me along in Tim and Liz's journey, one which I recently told them, mirrors mine in many ways. As a small scale family farmer in Northern Kentucky, I found Nature's Harmony Farm through a friends link on Facebook.I read through their website, visited their videos, have yet to hear a podcast (though I bet they are great), and finally read the book.It really tells it like it is. I bought my farm the same year as the Young's (though only quit my corporate job this past May) and was overjoyed to find a feeling of kinship in their story, one which reconfirmed my own journey. I am not as far along in my journey, but reading about their trials and tribulations gears me up for the next phase of my own journey. Because I have a personal connection as a farmer, I laughed at parts of the book, cried at others,and was intensely connected all the way through. In the end, I loved this book as much as I loved Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. It helped me to reset my direction and gave me a boost to rediscover why I became a farmer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read! Despite all of the negative "experts" reviews 2 décembre 2012
Par Adam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I do some homesteading and soon me and my wife are planning to have a small scale farm mostly for homesteading and to be sustainable ourselves. I thought this book was very informative on the way different types of farming is done as well as things I would like to do and what to expect, such as pig farming. I think people posted ridiculous reviews putting this book down but that is because it is not the way they farm. Do not let those deter you from reading this book. it was a great read for me and gave me a lot of information on what I could expect and how rewarding it can be. The ideals they have are their own and that is cool how they like the natural way. It is def not wrong but for people wanting information on homesteading or small scale farming this is great information even though they do a little bit larger scale. Awesome awesome book. As anywhere there will be people and their negative opinions but that is their right.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You Speak for Us! The small family farmer! 8 juin 2011
Par Farmer Kate - Publié sur Amazon.com
I just finished the Accidental Farmers and loved every chapter. It was interesting to get to know a little more about Liz and Tim Young, as I have been following them through Facebook and their podcasts for the past year and a half. Reading their story to farming made me feel inspired and a kindred spirit. My husband and I are "live-changers" too -- moving from New York City to suburban rural CT several years ago. Some passages were so funny (and so close to our own experiences), I had to read them aloud to my husband. We struggle with similar issues the Youngs do, and it was so nice to sort of "talk it out" with Tim as he explained decisions they've made on the farm. We appreciate so much their commitment to their land and their community and we hope this book will inspire others to do so as well. Great work Tim! I'm looking forward to watching your next move.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disturbing and disappointing 8 décembre 2011
Par Meredith Mizell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As someone who has been involved in sustainable agriculture for over 15 years now, I was disturbed and disappointed by the approach to animal husbandry detailed in this book. I read the book nearly a year ago and in that time, I've been unable to write a review that would reflect my visceral reaction to the Youngs' extreme approach without sounding overwhelmingly negative. If nothing else, the Youngs have increased public awareness of the cause of sustainable agriculture, so there is some merit in their work, and many farms could learn from their no-holds-barred marketing style. But as far as their animal husbandry goes, I think Masanobu Fukuoka said it best in his classic "One Straw Revolution:" "I had acted in the belief that everything should be left to take its natural course, but I found that if you apply this way of thinking all at once, before long things do not go so well. This is abandonment, not 'natural farming.'"
