With humor and poise, Jenna Woginrich describes her adventurous self-education in homesteading. Poignant offbeat observations on learning to farm by trial and error punctuate the story of her quest to find a permanent home for herself and her livestock: chickens, geese, sheep, ducks, rabbits, a goat, and a turkey. Alone and on a shoestring budget, Woginrich takes on cranky neighbors and small-town politics without ever losing her trademark humility or comedic style.


Symptoms of Acute Barnheart: Endless hours spent baking bread, studying chicken coop plans, gathering eggs, browsing seed catalogs, weeding the vegetable garden, attending sheepdog trials, dreaming about heritage-breed livestock, and longing incessantly for a farm of one's own. In a memoir filled with hope and humor, Jenna Woginrich recounts her adventures in homesteading and how she finally makes peace with her barnheart.

HASH(0x8fc5fdb0) von 5 Sternen Disappointing 13. Januar 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read the author's first book and really enjoyed it. This one was disappointing to me. It seemed less authentic and more like a caricature.In some strange way she seemed to be name-dropping; from the breeds of hens, to the kind of car she drove, to the music she listened to. Her enthusiasm seems genuine but maybe she has just played out the subject matter and was stretching for material.I hope she gets her farm and comes back with a fresh book. I would recommend checking this one out of the library rather than buying.

Jenna Woginrich
The incurable longing for a farm of one's own
Jenna is a witty, well rounded homesteader with a knack for finding the funniest things about farming and living off the land. I loved her book Chick Days and when I saw she had a memoir out I knew it would be a memorable read.
Jenna as she mentions in her intro goes from urban designer to rural shepherd. She starts her memoir with a chapter on "How to know if you are infected". Infected with what you ask? Barnheart.. the desire to be a farmer but due to circumstances it just isn't happening at the current time. Don't fret, hold tight and know you are not alone.
Having recently moved off our farm to a much smaller property I can seriously relate to Jenna. I had a farm and no longer do, having gone from a full farm to just a few chickens and rabbits. My heart longs for the goats and cows again and the title homesteader.. but circumstances just don't allow it right now. If I had read this prior to the move I don't think it would have the significant impact that it did now. I have more empathy for those who desire the rural life and haven't arrived there yet.
Taking off to Vermont Jenna plays her fiddle right into the heart of New Englanders, despite her quirkiness. I think she was just what they needed! It isn't always smooth sailing though, as Jenna learns lessons about living on a real farm. Not the story book kind of farm, but the downright dirty and hectic farm that is a ton of work and not always a huge payout.
Jenna blogs at [...] about her life of homesteading. She is always encouraging others to join in the fun and embrace the country life. Reading her memoir is like sitting down on her country porch talking with her about her farm and critters. Fantastic memoir for those who suffer Barnheart and for those who just love hearing about the antics of the farm life.
I received a copy of this book from Storey in exchange for an honest review. Get your copy today!!

HASH(0x8f54c258) von 5 Sternen The best thing about this is the title 9. Juli 2012
Von World of wool - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Frankly, I was more than a little disappointed by this book. It's a very slim volume indeed, and it's still pretty heavily padded. Not that much actually happens in this little memoir. The author moves to Vermont, gets a garden and some chickens going on her rental property, has some minor conflicts (but triumphs, of course) and waxes rhapsodic about farming. The book is very light on the actual details of smalltime farming, and heavy on poetic descriptions of how great dirt feels under your toes.

Don't get me wrong, the reason you read memoirs about the farming life is in part because of dirt-under-your-toes moments. But isn't it mostly because we want details about the chick brooder? The great aphid plague? What you did with that glut of chard you weren't expecting?

This book is basically one worthwhile essay stretched unnecessarily into a book. There just isn't that much story here, and it shows.

I wouldn't buy this. If you can get it at your library, it might be worth a skim for you to see if the writing style works for you, but I probably wouldn't plunk down the cash. If you're looking for a girl-goes-farm memoir, try The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love by Kristin Kimball. Much better.

HASH(0x8f54c5b8) von 5 Sternen Everything I was hoping for 15. Januar 2012
Von JingaDJ - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I already have Jenna's earlier book "Made from Scratch," which I thoroughly enjoyed. Jenna's writing style is clever, humorous, and a joy to read. Reading "Barnheart" I felt like I finally found another person who wanted what I want. I like to think of myself as a future farmer. I have always felt like I was alone in dreaming about buying land, working with animals, and living off the land as much as possible. But reading about her experiences has made me realize I am not the only one and that with time it is possible. If you also want to live in the country or at least have some farm animals running around your back yard I would recommend this book. I will be buying any future books she writes. I hope you enjoy them like I have.

HASH(0x8f54c36c) von 5 Sternen Smacks a bit of animal hoarding... 26. Februar 2013
Von Cutest Chicken Farmer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Who rents a cottage and sets up a mini-farm on it? She had permission to bring the two dogs, and I get it, that longing for a homestead of one's own, but it takes some nerve (and disregard for others' property!) to set one up on land that isn't yours. It sounded like there was an awful lot going on there, on that small patch of land, and there is no way that those animals had enough room or were properly cared for on so little space. She got herself into a jam, alienating a good bit of the local folks in the process. There was an expectation from the author that we feel sorry for her, being unfairly persecuted, but really, it's a wonder that it went on as long as it did without someone getting involved to make her stop.
