When Kristin Kimball fell in love with a farmer and left behind her life in Manhattan to start a new farm with him in the Adirondacks, she had to learn a lot about farming – and fast. But, it turns out that starting a farm is not as challenging as sustaining it. Over the next five years, as two children are born and more land is acquired, the farm has its ups and downs – but then the downs keep on coming. Kristin’s husband gets injured, the weather turns against them, the financial pressures mount. Suddenly, Kristin is facing bigger questions about the life she has chosen. ‘Good Husbandry’ is her refreshingly honest account of life, love, birth, death and successful harvests.
