A warm and joyful story of listening to your heart, getting your hands dirty, growing and raising your own food, making friends, finding love...?nd wayward piglets. After being raised among the canyons and walking tracks of the Blue Mountains, tamsin spent the decade after school working in advertising in Sydney and feeling like she got off at the wrong stop. She changed tack - studying continental philosophy at uni, working at a social research agency, and travelling the world - but still felt overwhelmed with homesickness for a farm she didn't have. So overwhelmed she decided to buy one. tamsin moved to East Gippsland knowing nothing about anything, but over the years - and after a lot of digging and planting and fencing and calf rearing and general bewilderment about the ways of farming - she has learned more about the human condition than she ever did studying Heidegger and Nietzsche. And she has also learnt her fair share about pigs. Her intimate memoir unfolds through tales of farming, gardening, eating, cooking, hard work, community and loving - the many joys and sometime miseries of life on the farm.
