About this title:

Synopsis: Recreates a year in the life of the Treadways and their New England dairy farm, which has been in the family for generations, and captures the seasonal events, chores, tragedies, struggles and joys of family farming

From Publishers Weekly: In a book reminiscent of Richard Rhodes's Farm , Pistorius ( The Country Journal Book of Birding ) takes us through four seasons on the 350-acre Vermont dairy spread of Dick and Joan Treadway and their four children. Dairying, as we're shown graphically, is more than milking cows--fences must be mended, animals moved from barn to pasture, milking equipment cleaned regulary. Summer is haying; cutting, baling and storing require machinery, which needs frequent repair. There is deep concern about weather and taxes. During the year covered, family and beasts alike have medical problems; a cow dies and a calf is born. At sugaring time, the Treadways hang 1300 sap buckets, but the harvest proves disappointing. With fitting admiration Pistorius acquaints us with folk of grit, a family that in the tradition of its forebears tenaciously holds fast to its farm.
