Love this story by Laura Putre in the Chicago Reader about a former psychologist, turned used book store owner who chucked his city living for a farm in the Arkansas Ozarks.
Great storytelling Laura. I read it all the way to the end, which is pretty amazing considering I have a pretty limited attention span.
The picture here is a crop of a larger Reader photo of Farmer Joe Judd with a toy tractor. We have this tractor, minus the rubber on one of the front wheels. It belonged to the iFarmer's grandpa, who like Judd and so many farmers, had one career to pay the bills (he was a teacher) and farmed as a way of life.
More about Judd, Myopic books, his farm and his beautiful Jacob Sheep at Judds Farm.
