About the Author
Laura Childs, a self-professed city girl of thirty years, cashed out her savings and moved to the country with her newborn daughter. With the purchase of a neglected homestead, a few goats that no one else wanted, and a dozen hens, mother and daughter began their adventures of living off the land. After twenty years of farm life, Childs has moved closer to town with plans to return to her farming ways in retirement. The author lives in Ontario, Canada.
