Lynn R. Miller is one of the country's foremost experts on small farms.

Miller has been farming since 1970 and working with draft horses since 1973. In 1976 he conceived of and started The Small Farmer's Journal, an international farm quarterly. To this day he functions as editor/publisher and as such he offers, to over 40,000 subscribers around the world a powerful tool for self-sufficiency, sustainability and community.
