The Joy of Hobby Farming: A Sustainable Life that Protects the Land and Environment

“The Joy of Hobby Farming will guide you toward self-sufficiency and restore your faith in your own two hands, if you’d just start digging.” – Ference Mate, author of A Vineyard in Tuscany and A Reasonable Life

Michael and Audrey Levatino are not farmers by profession, They have office jobs to pay the bills, but they, like thousands of other Americans, long for a more sustainable lifestyle that is better for the environment, better for local communities, and provides them with the emotionally fulfilling opportunity to work with their hands and provide for themselves. That’s hobby farming.

In The Joy of Hobby Farming, the Levatinos provide readers with tips for doing everything from growing your own food to how to choose the right blooms for your garden of flowers to running your farm as a business to earn additional revenue on the side.
