    schema:description "Jenkins and Walter had their lives turned upside down when they adopted their pig-daughter Esther-- a "micro" pig who turned out to be a full-sized commercial pig growing to a whopping 600 pounds. They started the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary to care for other animals and just live happily ever after... or so they thought. The realities of being a farmer-- when you have never lived outside of the city-- can be frantic, crazy, and even insane. This is their memory of the sanctuary as it grew to 42 animals. -- adapted from jacket"@en ;
    schema:description "Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter, had their lives turned upside down when they adopted their pig-daughter Esther--the so-called micro pig who turned out to be a full-sized commercial pig growing to a whopping 600 pounds--as they describe in their bestselling memoir Esther the Wonder Pig. The book ends with them moving to a new farm, and starting a new wonderful life where they will live on the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary to care for other animals and just live happily ever after... Or so they thought. People often think about giving it all up and just moving to a farm. In theory it sure does sound great. But as Derek and Steve quickly realized, the realities of being a farmer--especially when you have never lived on a farm let alone outside of the city--can be frantic, crazy, and even insane. Not only are they adjusting to farm life and dutifully taking care of their pig-daughter Esther (who by the way lives in the master bedroom of their house), but before they knew it their sanctuary grew to as many as 42 animals, including: pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, cows, roosters, a peacock, a duck, a horse, a donkey, and a barn cat named Willma Ferrell. Written with joy and humor, and filled with delicious Esther-approved recipes dispersed throughout the book, this charming memoir captures an emotional journey of one little family advocating for animals everywhere."@en ;
