From Library Journal:

This is not the typical "how we left the city to find peace in the country" narrative, but the story of the evolution of Hedgehog Hill Farm from a weekend getaway for two Boston professionals to a full-time self-sustaining business. Silber describes the gradual changes from occasional farmers' market vegetable sales to commercial contracts, lectures, a mail-order business, and retail shop on the premises. A thoughtful, enjoyable book with a useful list of readings on gardening, herbs, and dried flowers. Recommended. Elizabeth K. Tom, formerly with Purdue Univ. Libs., West Lafayette, Ind.

From Publishers Weekly:

In what PW called a "beautifully written book," Silber recounts how she and her husband gave up publishing careers and city life, some 20 years ago, to move to Hedgehog Hill farm, near Buckfield, Maine, and set up a mail-order produce business.
