Lynn R. Miller is one of the country's foremost experts on small farms. A multi-faceted speaker, author, storyteller, artist, teacher, and farmer, his efforts to champion the causes, and advocate the support, of the small independent family-based farms and ranches of North America have made a significant difference. 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.
Miller has authored (and sometimes illustrated) over 12 books on various topics related to animal power and alternative agriculture, including; The Small Farm Dream is Possible, Why Farm, The Workhorse Handbook, Buying a Farm, Work Horses Today, Training Workhorses, Thought Small, Ten Acres Enough, Horsedrawn Plows & Plowing, Haying with Horses and more. He has conducted workshops and lectured extensively throughout the United States and Canada. He continues with research and development in agriculture alternatives. He is currently farming a mixed crop/livestock, high-desert, horse-powered, family ranch raising Belgian Draft Horses, commercial beef cattle, free range poultry, potatoes, hay, grain, while working to dovetail operations into an ever more beneficial symbiotic relationship with the fragile surrounding wildlife habitat.
