When the farm is a lifestyle choice, rather than the way to earn a living, that's hobby farming, say Michael and Audrey Levatino, who run their own 23-acre hobby farm, Ted's Last Stand. While many of us want to live a sustainable life in which we protect the land and keep it safe from development and overproduction, the Levatinos explain how to take this a step further by learning how to grow and savor what we can produce ourselves while maintaining another career to fund this passion.
"Detailed but never excessively so, and richly illustrated with color photos, the Levatinos' book is a useful manual for would-be hobby farmers and a world of entertainment for readers with a passion for going green or simply with fond recollections of farm life."—Richmond Times-Dispatch
