    I just finished the book “Gaining Ground” by Forrest Pritchard. I read one book after another year round and I have to say “Gaining Ground” is the best non-fiction book I’ve read in a long time. People who read this book will get two things. One, they will get an enjoyable tale about a young man’s effort to convert his family’s financially troubled farm in to a sustainable profitable operation. This information alone is a excellent source of advice and information to farmers of all ages, especially to those of you involved in direct marketing.

    Secondly, they will get an enjoyable reading experience about farm life, it’s joys and it’s pitfalls told through Forrest’s point of view. The book reminded me a lot of the “All Creatures” stories published years ago by an English veterinarian, James Herriot.

    My advice to readers of “On Pasture” is to purchase this book in either printed or ebook format, read it, then figure out a way to re-gift it to some special person in your life as an excellent Christmas gift.
