Editorial Reviews


"Farming has been part of the Badger State since before it was a state. With Wisconsin Farm Lore, prolific Milwaukee author, gentleman farmer and Shepherd Express contributor Martin Hintz compiles a potpourri of interesting material concerning Dairyland--and it's not all cows and cheese. Abraham Lincoln addressed the State Agricultural Society in 1859 on his road to the White House, and Hintz excerpts his speech--along with the comments of many other historical and contemporary figures who have commented on Wisconsin's growing power." --David Luhrssen, Shepherd-Express

About the Author

Martin Hintz, author of Forgotten Tales of Wisconsin and A Spirited History of Milwaukee Brews and Booze with The History Press, has written about one hundred books for various publishers (Lerner, Capstone, Arcadia, Scholastic, Globe Pequot, Franklin Watts, Voyageur, Trails, Big Earth and others) on various topics. These include Celebrate the Legend: 25 Years of Milwaukee Irish Fest (Milwaukee Irish Fest, 2005); Got Murder? The Shocking Story of Wisconsin's Notorious Killers (Trails Publishing, 2007); Wisconsin Cheese: A Cookbook and Guide to the Cheeses of Wisconsin (Globe Pequot, 2008); and Off the Beaten Path: Wisconsin (Globe Pequot Press, 1989, with various reprints).

He and his wife, Pam Percy, operate Pampered Produce, a small farm in northern Milwaukee County. Members of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau, Milwaukee Urban Gardens and the Slow Food movement, they raise vegetables and chickens for eggs in a Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) program, serving more than twenty clients during the growing season. Pam has written two books on chickens: The Complete Chicken (Voyageur Press, 2005) and A Field Guide to Chickens (Voyageur Press, 2006). They collaborated on the Wisconsin cheese cookbook for Globe Pequot and also write regularly about food issues, chefs and restaurants for a number of magazines. For more than a decade, the couple has reported on Milwaukee's social/nightlife scene in a column, "Boris & Doris on the Town," for the Shepherd Express newspaper.
