— Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Vitamin N

— Leah Webb, author of The Seven-Step Homestead

Beautiful and important ... A must-read for anyone considering adding a child to the farm.

— Andrew Mefferd, editor of Growing for Market Magazine

This gorgeous book offers the gifts and challenges of what it looks like to bring our children alongside in the work of healing and harvesting. I marvel at what might just be possible if more of us placed our babies in the dirt, helped them put seeds in the ground, and reimagined what it means to be part of the wild ecosystem to which we belong.

— Lydia Wylie-Kellermann, author of This Sweet Earth: Walking with our Children in the Age of Climate Collapse

This is a beautiful book filled with tons of real life examples from farmers and homesteaders around the country, and their kids ... it’s wonderful to see their good examples shared more widely to benefit the next generation of up and coming farmers.

— Josh Volk, author of Compact Farms and Build Your Own Farm Tools
