Review quotes

"A book of mindfulness, philosophy, music, musing, poetry, and the re-emergence of the most ancient of religions ... this fine little book is rich in loving immersion in a way of life, of neighborliness, [and] in longing ... Even those tasks for which she has had to hire or barter for help are enriching for her. And for her readers, to which fortunate band I urge you to add yourself."

“This small, beautifully illustrated book is one of the best farm memoirs I've read. Woginrich's dedication to rural life is inspiring. Her week-to-week recollection of a year on her "one woman farm" shows all the joy she gains from her hard manual labor. But she also maintains a healthy realism and reminds the reader that farm life isn't for everyone. One Woman Farm: My Life Shared with Sheep, Pigs, Chickens, Goats, and a Fine Fiddle takes us from October to October, a full calendar of baby animals, frozen land, crop harvests, and solo holidays. The occasional handwritten recipe and inspirational quote make the book feel almost like a personalized guide to homesteading.”

“Jenna’s writing is deep, philosophical and true to her heart. … [her] little book changed my perspective to one of appreciation for all we have now, for next season with even more growing space and for a bug-free October day with dirt-covered hands and knees. … Thank you, Miss Woginrich, for the reminder to savor each day. “

One Woman Farm is a book to be savored, helping the reader to contemplate what is truly important in life: sunrises, fresh food, the love of hard work and having a purpose in life. Woginrich's 'observational spiritual farming' is a gift to the reader.”
