When Sylvia Jorrin first moved to upstate New York, she had no intention of becoming a farmer. But after a neighboring dairy farmer suggested they use her acreage to start a farm together, they applied and received a grant of nine sheep. They soon bought ten more. Then her partner quit. Faced with eighteen pregnant ewes, a violent ram, and the coldest December on record in the Catskill Mountains, Sylvia gradually learned to tame her sheep and conquer the elements. Sylvia's Farm is the tale of a life on the farm, and all the hard and heartbreaking lessons it teaches. Told in short vignettes that span a decade, it is a journal of growth, persistence, and the unexpected joys that a new day can bring. Sylvia Jorrin has been a farmer in Delaware County for the past fifteen years. She is one of two women livestock farmers in the three hundred farms of the New York City Watershed. Over the past decade, she has published a weekly column in the Delaware County Times. "Reading Sylvia Jorrin's new book, Sylvia's Farm, is a stroll through the countryside's year listening to a voice that's finely attuned to the meteorological, animal, and vegetable kingdoms."-Providence Journal Also Available: HC 1-58234-401-9 $23.95
