Best known for his classic handbook, Five Acres and Independence, M. G. Kains contributed a second gem to back-to-the-land literature: his true-life adventures in We Wanted a Farm. Kains shows how he and his family moved from New York City apartments to a full-fledged farm in easy stages: first to a rented suburban house where they grew a large vegetable garden, then in a purchased suburban house where they concentrated on fruits and berries, and finally on a full-blown farm where they went into fruits and berries in a big way.

Kains’ “Don’t quit your day job” approach allowed them to gain experience without betting the farm: not until they were ready.

First published in 1941, Norton Creek Press is proud to bring this charming book back into print.
