Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With supermarket shelves and farmer’s markets offering more and more organic produce these days, the opportunities for new and existing farmers to profit from consumers’ healthier eating habits are multiplying every year. With 25 years under his belt as an organic farmer, Stewart has plenty of hard-earned expertise to draw on in this comprehensive, well-designed guidebook to growing ecologically safe herbs and vegetables. In seven lucidly written and informative sections, Stewart covers topics such as equipment and tools, soil management, crop rotation, harvesting, storage, and invaluable tips on marketing one’s products. Vitally important issues, such as dealing with weeds and insects without resorting to pesticides, are also given a thorough going-over, buttressed by the author’s frequent philosophical asides emphasizing the need to act as good stewards of the land. While Stewart’s target audience here is small- and mid-scale organic growers, novice gardeners can also benefit from his broadly tailored advice and find plenty of inspiration for using his organic methods to transform their backyard gardens. --Carl Hays --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

“With 25 years under his belt as an organic farmer, Stewart has plenty of hard-earned expertise to draw on in this comprehensive, well-designed guidebook to growing ecologically safe herbs and vegetables.”

(Fedco Seeds)

“Whether you’re buying your first farm property, planning a transition from kitchen gardener to market grower, or looking for ways to improve your existing farm operation, Storey’s Guide to Growing Organic Vegetables and Herbs for Market is an invaluable addition to your farmstead library.”



"This book could be a template for any new and beginner farmer education curriculum.  I fully expect to see dog-eared copies of this book on the dashboards of pickup trucks and farm-house kitchen tables all across the region."



“I felt like I was attending an excellent college lecture and discussion series, and I am sure this book will become required reading in many a sustainable ag class.”

It's more than a how-to book, though there is a plenty of that.
B J Bosman
Mr. Stewart dissects the issues involved in acquiring and making a living in today's small farm economy.
Tim Will
I have never reviewed a book before but, in my opinion, this one is worth the time to recommend.

I'm not likely to ever grow anything for market, but I thought I'd read some of this book, maybe a chapter or two. I ended up enjoying the entire book. Keith's engaging style of writing makes this an interesting subject. You get a feel not only for the complexities of farming, but sense of what drives these farmers to this way of life. And you get an appreciation for why organic food costs more!

Format: Paperback
How to-books about farming can seem as prolific as weeds. The latest, and one of the best, in this long line is from a transplanted New Zealander, Keith Stewart. This book will bear fruit for serious farmers or non-farmers considering organic markets. Among the latest crop of books that feed the fantasies of would-be farmers, this one is grounded in getting to work. Stewart, a celebrity garlic grower and greenmarket star, has produced a valuable guide for making a living--not just living on the land. Keith's book belies categorization. It's more than a how-to book, though there is a plenty of that. It's also a wry and keenly observed memoir. This guide reveals the many calculations, gambits, and losses and rewards that anyone starting to farm organically can expect. Tom Hatley, Environmental Consultant and Historian

As a new organic vegetable grower, I greatly appreciate Keith sharing his 30 years of practical experience. This book is the most comprehensive one I've read. It is spot-on, well written and full of very helpful information perfectly suited for any small scale organic vegetable operation. This book covers it all; from crop planning to marketing, equipment to greenhouses, soil health, even garlic and herbs. It has become the single book I recommend to any new farmer and all new farm employees.

Again Keith writes a wonderful,informative book on organic farming I especially enjoyed the brief stories of other organic farmers and how they got started into farming. The only thing I missed were more of his wife's Flavia's woodcuts.
