Great resource 26 octobre 2013
Par Ben - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is very well written and an easy, entertaining read. I am amazed at how thorough he has covered the subject. It is an outstanding resource for the small scale farmer and especially for someone new to grain growing. This is a great place to start, and will give you a good base of knowledge and the confidence to go out and put plow to soil.

The Glory of Grain, the Grandeur of Organic Agriculture 23 novembre 2013
Par Bud Tristano - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Steeped in agricultural history and distilled in life experience, Jack Lazor gives us a book that covers everything you need to know to grow, store and use organic grains. The Organic Grain grower will be invaluable to everyone from home-style gardeners to full-scale farmers. Comprehensive enough to serve as a university textbook yet organized well enough to be a handy reference book - the first eight chapters cover general topics from soil fertility and planting to harvest and storage, while the remainder devotes a chapter to each grain covered (corn, wheat, barley etc.). Although the author's own personal odyssey is centered in Vermont, this should not deter would-be grain-growers in other regions. The unique set of circumstances in northern New England notwithstanding, it is the problem-solving and overall knowledge base which can be applied anywhere.

Drawing from over four decades of experience, Mr. Lazor has acquired an immense amount of knowledge. Leaving no stone unturned, he has learned from all sources. That is to say, from university to field, library to farm: scientists, historians, farmers (conventional and organic alike), homesteaders, end-users (e.g. millers and bakers) and most of all, the school of hard knocks, experience itself, which he relates in a very engaging personable manner. Indeed, much of the book reads as if one is sitting down with the author in conversation. He shares all, good and bad alike, so that new grain growers are aware of strategies and pitfalls. His advice even extends into agronomics - acquiring everything from seed to used equipment at bargain prices hand in hand with overall farm management for fun and profit. What drives him is his passion - from enriching and tilling the soil to nurturing sprouting plants to combining amber waves of grain. His joie de vivre is infectious: "Planting oats with a seed drill is paradise in motion for me on a warm spring day in early April."

One does not need to aspire to be a farmer or gardener to enjoy this book. It is engaging enough that it can be read as a narrative by anyone interested in agricultural history or what goes into the food we eat. One of the greatest assets in life (and in this book) is a sense of humor - especially in a more challenging pursuit as farming. From comic relief in overcoming adversity (fixing a machine in the field: "... knuckles would get skinned and epithets would fly.") to aesthetic pleasure (recalling his first successful wheat crop: "There is nothing more sublime than beginner's luck."), you will enjoy the author's company. If books are adventures for the mind, this one is akin to serving a farm apprenticeship for the mind.

Mr. Lazor wraps up his narrative with a hopeful look into the future. Despite the challenges we all face in an ever-increasing complex world (from climate to corporate) we can channel our desire for complete independence into self-sustaining communities. Quality begins at home.

Begin here 28 janvier 2014

Before I talk about this book,a little context for it.According to the US census only 1% of us list our occupation as farmers. That is 1 in 100 people for those who dislike percentages.In New Hampshire , where I live - a mostly rural state with no city even close to a half million people- nit is 1 in 1,000, and that one is part-time.This is how civilizations collapse. This is ecological imbalance that no technology can address.

Jack Lazor has, as he stresses, obsessed about growing and processing grain for local markets for at least 35 years, living in far northern Vermont. This book details his experience, but not as autobiography. Instead it is meant to light a fire under the feet of anyone who can spare enough attention to wonder where their bread, oatmeal, beans, and cooking oil might come from. Next year. The year after that.

I have been hoping like hell a book like this would show up. The information here may be available somewhere (the references are all online-a first in my experience for a book, but a concession and an aid that is necessary now) but here it is collected and presented in the real world of dirt and weather. This is not the most basic primer that some might want , but it is the Rosetta Stone for anyone who has a desire to grow grain and even a little experience in a garden. Heavy New England character, but, again, readily translatable to anywhere in a temperate climate.

Here is where we start if we want to have real food security.

Ok book but I expected a lot more out of it 24 janvier 2014
Par Wyatt W. Jones - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an decent book if you don't know much about the subject and live in New England. Some of the farming methods are outdated and not really that good for the soil, especially if your soil has a high clay content. Though I understand he's trying to give hints about how to farm on a low budget, he should give more background into why and where these methods might be OK or not, the way its written is a little too one size fits all. Its written far too New England specific, in many places like here in Ohio with my heavy clay soil, many of his methods would be pretty detrimental and he doesn't address that subject at all. A beginning farmer facing different farming conditions than those in New England and who didn't know any better might be better off not having read this book unless he knew enough to sort out what was region specific but then he probably wouldn't need the book in the first place. Like said its an OK book but I didn't really learn much from it and would do things a little differently. As it is the title should read 'The Organic Grain Grower: Small-Scale, Holistic Grain Production for the Home and Market Producers of New England"

Thorough and encouraging views on small scale grain production 17 janvier 2014
Par Janet L. Pearson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Most of us don't have a few acres to spare, and even then, potatoes are probably a more reliable source of carbs for most of us to grow, but if you have ever contemplated growing even a few square feet of grain as bird feed or as protein sources for a vegan diet, this book will give you lots of ideas and references to see you on your way.
