“...bursting with determination and optimism. These essays by beginning farmers are chatty, colorful reports that made me laugh and left me in awe of all the hard work that goes into growing our food. The farmers revel in simple pleasures and big challenges.” (The Boston Globe)

Meet America's new farmers. Resourceful and hard-working, "greenhorns" are passionate about improving the food we eat through sustainable and humane farming practices. Their inspirational stories speak to the challenges and rewards of earning a living off the land, embracing risks, and feeding local communities―all while maintaining a profound respect for the Earth.

In this new book―a companion to the documentary film The Greenhorns―editors and movement leaders Zoe Ida Bradbury, Severine von Tscharner Fleming, and Paula Manalo have assembled a wide range of stories that instruct as they inspire. With topics including financing, family, logistics, machinery, community building, and social change,

Greenhorns helps young and aspiring farmers navigate career paths, build skills, connect with each other while growing self-sufficient enterprises with conviction, vision, and respect for the earth. Filled with advice, anecdotes, and stories of life lessons learned, Greenhorns is a must-read not only for new farmers, but also for self-reliance enthusiasts and anyone interested in organic, locally grown food.
