The world of Sylvia's Farm is a rich landscape of natural beauty and simple pleasures. Sylvia Jorrín never expected to become the first woman in the New York City Watershed to solely own and operate a large livestock farm. But first the farm, and then farm life, captured her heart as it has captured the hearts of all those who have read her book. Through unexpected surprises and unanticipated hardships, Sylvia Jorrín has grown into the epitome of the one thing she never expected to be: a farmer.

A brown hen with spurs on her feet. It is not distinguished by anything exceptional, markings or color, or personality, for that matter. A chicken most easy to forget. A chicken most easy to forget nger surrounded by a dozen little chickens. Tiny little chickens. Six black or steel gray, reminders of Zorro the fighter rooster who lived here for a little too long, and six yellow with a brown or, rather, sienna stripe. Very pretty little chickens

For those unfamiliar with Sylvia, discovering her stories is like stumbling into a fully loaded wild blackberry patch-impossible to rush through, sweetly fulfilling, with an immediate longing to return to them again and again. Joshua Kilmer-Purcell, The Fabulous Beekman Boys.

The Journal of an Improbable Shepherd. Not that there weren't travails for Jorrín, who chronicled her ups and downs as a newly minted farmer in a weekly column for the Delaware (. County Times, from which these short, quiet, yet quick-footed vignettes were drawn. Her decision to raise sheep on her upstate New York spread, which included a rambling house and assorted outbuildings in the foothills of the Catskills, was instigated by a neighbor, who agreed to be her partner but soon bolted-much like the sheep whenever Jorrín tried to approach them.

I enjoyed this book. I looked forward to picking it up each evening and stayed up too late trying to finish one more chapter! Sylvia's narrative of 21st century life on a Delaware County, New York sheep farm is so accurate I was practically there. I think I was waiting for her to say something untrue, but it never happened! She makes reality beautiful and heart wrenching all at the same time, and when she implies that the task of naming the animals, is both the hardest, and the most fun, she's right! ( Amazon customer)
  • Such a woman to undertake being a farmer. Her writing is excellent. She approaches life with a positive attitude and a truly wonderful sense of humor. It's a page turner as you want to see the predicaments her life falls into.

  • I started reading this book because of a yearning to get back to my farm roots. Not only have I gotten over that yen, my appreciation for farmers has exponentially increased. What a hard, thankless life that never stops. I loved this book but especially loved the names Sylvia bestowed on her animals.

  • This book is a gem and one that I will read over and over again. Her writing puts you right at her side!

  • I throughly enjoyed Sylvia Jorrin story. She is a wonderful story teller who obviously loves life, animals, and simple living. I will recommend this one to my friends in the fiber and farm world.

  • Very special book, I hated to see it end.

  • Brought this for grandkids
