About the author

Sandra Kay Miller is a female farmer, damn good cook and witty writer slicing her finger open on the cutting edge of sustainable agriculture. Visiting her Painted Hand Farm is like living a crash course on all that's right with food and farming today - taught by one of the most delightful people ever to rebuild an antique Babson Surge Milker (and use it!) or raise a goat from birth to curry pot. Sandra has served on the boards of many organizations and has been instrumental in developing farmers markets. She's a prolific writer and speaker sharing her knowledge and experience with others.

    Surveys usually fail to ask the real questions on why sheep numbers declined. The answer, at least in my area, is predators. Ranch after ranch has been forced out after years of losing most of the lamb crop and sometimes adults. Many are now in grapes, sold for huge unproductive homesites, or now run cattle. And former ranchers are not surveyed.
