Reviews

"Why We Farm is the book for all the wannabe farmers to take to bed at night. I couldn't put the book down. DiBrigit tells a great story - an American tale about the cycle of rural life as its pioneer farmers and farm families reinvigorate America's rural valleys. Wells go dry, water quality is poor, people divorce - all told from sitting at the kitchen table with the farmers she features, or walking their fields. Though each farmer farms and markets differently, their stories provide a glimpse into a business model that's always changing - usually as a result of hard work, ingenuity, grit and luck. In responding to the call of the land, these farmers have brought life back to our beautiful Capay Valley, which DiBrigit captures so ably on the page in all its complexities."
