Pig Years

As a farmer in Upstate New York and Vermont, Ellyn Gaydos lives on the edge between loss and gain. Her debut memoir, Pig Years, draws us into this precarious world, conjuring with stark simplicity the lifeblood of the farm: its livestock and stark full moons, the sharp cold days lives near to the land. A long time farmer, Ellyn’s love of farms is reflected throughout the book.
