Abstract:

What happens when two hippies with virtually no knowledge of country life decide to set up house on a 129-acre farm in Upstate New York? That's what Steven Coffman and his wife Bobbie did in the late summer of 1972, and in Back to the Farm he tells the whole story of their grand undertaking with great humor, pathos, and wit. It's all about the many animals--pigs, ducks, cows, horses, cats, dogs, and other country creatures--who share their lives, as well as about learning the ways of the land, getting in tune with nature's cycles, and raising a family. Coffman, who will become a *Country Living *columnist this year, centers his pieces around the animals that make up his new rural world, capturing the stubborn recalcitrance of a pig, the pony that steps into the living room, and the magical migration of magnificent Monarch butterflies.
