Kristin Kimball - The Dirty Life

Kristin, a 32 year old from New York City, lived in a rent control apartment. A freelance writer she traveled to Pennsylvania to interview a organic farmer named Mark. 
Kristin fell in love with farming and then Mark and together moved to a 500 acre farm in upstate NY.

Part of this book seemed like fiction to me. The amount of help and support they recieved from the community I wondered were they in Mayberry R.F.D? The day they arrived on bikes 10 years ago they were invited to a church dinner and the people they met that night are now lifelong friends. 

Loved the book and if you would like to find out more about Essex Farm please click HERE


  1. What a leap of faith she took! Amazing what love will do. I wish they had something like that around here-shoot, it would be worth joining to get fresh everything.

    Boy did they luck out when they arrived........yeah that sounds like something off an old television show like Mayberry RFD-back in the day......and those days were good ones.

    Thanks Linda-you share the most interesting things. That's why I love stopping by every day. :)


  2. This sounds really interesting. I will have to read more about this farm. I have had a busy day, so just getting on here now. Sure wish we had more towns like Mayberry RFD. Those days sure were good ones. Dreaming of the good old days.
