Hit by a Farm - How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Barn

Catherine Friend

Catherine Friend was happy being an author and writing instructor. She always wore clean clothes. She never had anything disagreeable stuck to the bottom of her shoes. That all changed the day she agreed to help her partner Melissa fulfill Melissa’s lifelong ambition to farm in Minnesota. Catherine and Melissa embark on a rural odyssey filled with sheep, goats, chicken, llamas, and a host of other natural disasters. As it turns out, farming isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Hit by a Farm is a coming-of (middle)-age story of a woman trying to close the divide between who she wants to be, and who she really is. After helping Melissa realize her dream, Catherine eventually finds a way to recapture her own in this unforgettable crash course in living off-and living with-the land. "A sweet and funny book in the classic Hardy Girls Go Farming genre, elegantly told, from the first two pages, which are particularly riveting for the male reader, through the astonishing revelation that chickens have belly-buttons and on to the end, which comes much too soon. It has dogs, sheep, a pickup truck, women's underwear, electric fences, the works." -Garrison Keillor "A charming memoir...with magical moments." -The New York Times Book Review "This honest look at collaboration and compromise, the pain and joy of partnership, and the hands-on of farming will find a ready audience." -Booklist "Alternating between humor and sad befuddlement, Hit By a Farm is going to make city folks chuckle and seasoned farmers laugh out loud. Ms. Friend isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself and her bookishness...." -The Country Today Published by Dog Ear Audio. Distributed by Big Happy Family LLC.
