"A heartfelt meditation on farm, food, and family…a love story of the land and a life spent caring for it."
—HANNAH NORDHAUS, author ofThe Beekeeper's Lament

In this love story of land and family, Kayann Short explores her farm roots
from her grandparents' North Dakota homesteads to her own Stonebridge Farm, an organic, community–supported farm on the Colorado Front Range where small–scale, local agriculture borrows lessons of the past to cultivate sustainable communities for the future.

KAYANN SHORT, Ph.D., is a writer, farmer, teacher, and activist at Stonebridge Farm, an organic community–supported farm in the Rocky Mountain foothills. She has directed memoir and digital storytelling projects with community elders, adult literacy students, and nonprofit organizations. Her writing has appeared inWomen's Review of Books,The Bloomsbury Review,Edible Front Range, andColorado Gardener. More on her ecology–based memoir work is available at Besides growing delicious food at Stonebridge, Short teaches the important place of organic food production and agricultural preservation in a healthy, environmentally sustainable community.

"Scattered in among musings of local food systems, community action, family history, and current farm realities are clear moments of reflection that demonstrate Short's acumen as a writer."

"Short's focus on a CSA makes this memoir distinctive from other recent farm–related nonfiction."

"A Bushel's Worth is my favorite kind of nonfiction. Not only is it about many topics close to my heart—gardening, food, family—it is a beautifully told story, and a love story at that, centered around the love of a couple, their love for the land, and a community's love for a way of life. This book forever changed my perspective and awareness as I 'walk out' in my own garden."
KATRINA KITTLE, author ofThe Blessings of the Animals

HANNAH NORDHAUS, author ofThe Beekeeper's Lament

"An inspiring story, a gift for all of us, both on and off the farm, who are trying to learn how to slow down our frenzied lives so that we may give ourselves to what really matters."
GREGORY SPAID, author ofGrace: Photographs of Rural America

"With a companionable mix of literary and earthy sensibilities, Kayann Short writes with graceful, ferocious attentiveness and finds reassurance for herself and her modern family in 'the old wisdom of the fields.'"
JOHN CALDERAZZO, author ofRising Fire

"A loving natural history—of a farm, a marriage, and a way of life that has changed interestingly and dramatically over just a few generations."
JANE SHELLENBERGER, author ofOrganic Gardener's Companion
