Excerpt from the introduction:

To become a farmer is to accept the worst sides of chance and laugh at them, and to understand there is no difference between pleasure and pain. Feeling either is proof you are still waltzing among the living.

I love equally the early mornings that get me outdoors before the sun crests the tree line and the early nights tucked in under heavy blankets with my kind dogs. I am too tired and too grateful for their heat to kick them out of the covers. I rejoice in holding baby chicks in my dirty hands and feeling their rapid-fire heartbeats under their baby down. I rejoice in the black soil of spring, the sweat and humidity of summer, and even the downpours that wash away three months of work.

We all thrive together here at my homestead. Cold Antler Farm has always been a one-woman operation--me--but that hasn't slowed down its growth. It has grown from tending just a handful of chickens and a few rabbits into a full-time job. I raise dairy goats and turn their milk into cheese and soap. I raise rabbits, pigs, and chickens for their meat. I keep hens for eggs. There are expansive vegetable gardens and beehives, too. I use horses as working animals to cart, haul, and plow. There are no tractors on this mountain farm, just a strong brick house of a Scottish pony and my stubbornness. The farm runs entirely on animal power, and usually I am the animal powering it.

(I'm not against tractors, I simply can't afford one. Even if I could I am certain it would topple over and crush me on my steep hillsides.)

This is what takes up my daylight, and keeps me up in the darkness. It's a lot of things to me, but mostly love. I'm in a monogamous relationship with six-and-a-half acres cut into a mountain.

Revue de presse

"Verdict: Homesteading advice, some recipes, and a good dose of humility make this a most enjoyable read for anyone who is interested in living a life that’s more in tune with natural rhythms."—Library Journal

“Few writers can put into words the epiphanies that break upon a mind and spirit communing with a piece of earth. Home, barn, and garden converge in the quietness of agrarian labor to provide transcendent thoughts about living, loving, and learning. Jenna is a master.”—Joel Salatin, farmer, Polyface Farm, and author
 “In this graceful and touching book, Jenna Woginrich reminds us of humanity’s deep connection to season and cycle. This is a book full of humility, inspiration, and the richness of experience inherent to living in harmony with natural forces far beyond our control.”—Ben Hewitt, author of The Town That Food Saved

“Jenna Woginrich’s life and writing are both marked with a ferocity and passion that are inspiring, disturbing, and mesmerizing all at the same time. This is a powerful memoir of a brave and determined young woman's love affair with a gritty six-acre farm that is every inch her own and her struggles to keep it going.”—Jon Katz, author of The Second-Chance Dog: A Love Story

“In Cold Antler Farm, Jenna Woginrich lovingly grabs you by the hand and takes you along for the ride of her life. As the caretaker of a menagerie of lively animals and an antique home riddled with personality, she is the sage observer of seasonal rhythms and the compassionate soul studying, questioning, and learning from it all. This book will ultimately leave you torn: you'll be just as anxious to turn the page and learn what comes next while simultaneously wanting to close the book, put it down, and walk away, so as to draw out the eventual conclusion. It's that good.”—Ashley English

1.0 étoiles sur 5 It's full of useless repetition and cliches 13 juillet 2015
Par Sequin - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am really cross with myself for buying this book without having done any research first. I was going through a phase of reading "back to the land" books and bought this based on the reviews. The writer is not nearly as enamoured with farm life as she is with herself. I might have forgiven her utter lack of humility and the grating, supercilious way that she takes herself so seriously if this were actually a well-written book, but it's not! It's full of useless repetition and cliches. Worse still, it is utterly disorganised (where was the editor?). Did they just cobble together some blog posts? Very weird and utterly disappointing.
For someone trying so desperately hard to live an "authentic" life this book seems strangely inauthentic. Or perhaps she is just young and I, being a bit north of forty, have little tolerance for the smug, self-righteous tone of a twenty-something? Evidently I am in the minority in not liking this book... But if back to the land stories are what you are after... There's are far far better ones out there. Start with, for example: A Handmade Wilderness. Then try Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I could name at least a dozen more that are worth reading. This one is getting donated to our local library straight away!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful, evocative thoughts on owning a small homestead 19 juin 2014
Par Cissa - Publié sur

I love Woginrich's books, and this one is excellent. It focuses on the wheel of the year, and includes essays on both the seasonal responsibilities and their rewards. Very grounded!

My husband and I hope to retire to a small holding like this, though we are not up for being as ambitious as Woginrich is! Still, it's very inspirational, and her writing is helping me to maybe find some joy in gardening (I'm more a critter person) than merely the harvest.

I also love the way she connects the wheel of the year with social commentary. That context is vital to sustainable lifestyles, however they might be achieved.

Highly recommended, especially to people who long for a small-holding of their own- however realistic that might be.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Do not waste your money 29 août 2015
Par Amazon Review - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Wow what can I say, the girl can write.. mad skills in regards to that part of the book..

and all downhill from there, If you are wanting to read about homesteading-Small Farming then this is not going to help you..

If her books take you to her blog, you come to understand that she is not doing any of what she is writing, the books are the dream, her living it, is the faint shadow in real life.

one crisis after another, asking for help, begging for money sent. when I pay money to read about someone that has done it, it is very disappointing when her very own blog shows and tells you that its her pipe dream

Don't bother. If you've read one of her books, you've read them all. Boring as hell, just a blog post on repeat.

I own all of Jenna's books, but this one is hands down my very favorite!! I love the way she writes about living life on her small homestead through the Wheel of the Year, and her thoughts, feelings, and experiences as each season passes. I've been a fan of hers for a long time, and this is one book I'll definitely be enjoying more than once.
