Our summer read for AgBookClub will be Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman by Miriam Horn. This book follows the stories of many individuals involved in the production agriculture industry and what they’re doing to practice conservation and sustainability in their respective domains.
Here’s what you need to do this month:
Get the book. Buy it, borrow it, read over your neighbor’s shoulder — we don’t care. But don’t steal the book.
