In a world full of theory and unapplied academics, Chicken Tractor shines as a sterling example of a practical prototype developed by dirt-under-the-fingernails, creative thinkers. The simple elegance in design and description challenge me afresh to smack my forehead and exclaim now why didn t I think of that ! In our efforts to bring new paradigms to poultry production, we share a common vision, a brand-new ethics of excellence for proper models, delicious food and local profit potentials. Joel Salatin Author and Lunatick Farmer --Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm
The information in Chicken Tractor is clearly based on a life full of practical farming experience and experimentation. Andy and Pat generously share with you their hard-earned knowledge. You can t get enough of this kind of information. This down-to-earth, unpretentious style helps make the Chicken Tractor a readable and often humorous book. Karen Di Franza The Natural Farmer --The Natural Farmer
Changing climate patterns and chemically contaminated foods are making homegrown food incredibly valuable. The old-fashioned practice of raising a few chickens in the backyard is coming back into vogue. Chicken Tractor shows how easy and profitable it can be to add chickens to your growing season. Gene Logsdon Author, Contrary Farmer --Gene Logsdon, Author & Contrary Farmer
