Local author Amy Doeun says, “I never planned to be a farmer.” But life had other plans for her, through an interesting turn of events she and her husband Proeun (originally from Cambodia) found themselves on a 40-acre farm in Rush City, trying to learn the ropes of organic farming. Over the years, their family and knowledge grew as did a passion for the simple, good life of living close to the land and seasons.
In her book, “Home School Farm,” Doeun shares what seasonal living looks like on their farm “Crazy Boy Farm.” She writes of the book, “This book sprang from our personal journey. We started out renting land in Stillwater and farming there while we continued to live on the East Side of St. Paul. We were commuting almost every day in the hopes of one day fulfilling our dream.”
The book is divided into monthly sections with a brief essay followed by 4-5 projects for the month. There are also six longer essays interspersed through the book featuring topics like budgets, loss and death, passion, abundance and more. It is a full color book with pictures from daily life on the farm.
While the book is written by a homeschool mom it is designed for anyone who wants to know more about simple, seasonal living.
