Praise for The Farm
"The newly released book The Farm
by Wendell Berry is a worthwhile purchase simply for its beauty. A trade reprint of the hard–to–find letterpress edition by Kentucky’s Larkspur Press, this new book retains the elegance of the original . . . It seems at the very heart of this work, Berry is describing a way of being, one rooted in the love of and care for a particular place." —Englewood Review of Books
"Literature–loving, farmer–appreciating foodies are bound to love the thoughtful gift that is a pocket–size, book–length poem by none other than famed Kentucky farmer, writer, and farmers’ rights champion Wendell Berry . . . Counterpoint Press’s new collector’s edition ($19) is a beautiful reproduction, complete with original drawings by Carolyn Whitesel." —Katie O'Reilly, Sierra
"Readers of Wendell Berry, the Kentucky farmer and poet, will love to give or receive this collector’s edition reproduction of one of his book–length poems." —Garden & Gun
