Since 1990, following ten years of Cliff Meadow farming on the coast of Cornwall in England, Scott Chaskey has been the head farmer at Quail Hill Farm, one of the country's first community supported agriculture farms, located on the windswept eastern tip of New York's Long Island. In this inspirational evocation of a life spent working the earth, Chaskey examines the connections between land and the human family through writing about four seasons of activity at Quail Hill. Descriptions of daily work on the farm - planting, cultivating, harvesting - and of various crops and creatures, from garlic to honeybees, from tomatoes to blackbirds, alternate with observations about the practice of sound land stewardship, community, and the challenges faced by all small farms.
