Prologue to Farm
Imagine an era
that’s diff’rent from now,
When times were not better,
but pleasing, somehow.
It’s the year 1950,
when farming was done
By Mother and Father
and Daughter and Son.
by Gordon W. Fredrickson

Farm Country Moments: Poems, Pictures and Memories
Foreward to Farm Country Moments by Bill Gleed, poet and manager of the Robert Frost Farm, Derry, New Hampshire.
These poems, memories, and lovely photos capture a vanishing segment of the American landscape--the family farm.
Mark Sieve, actor, producer, director, author, and co-creator of the Renaissance Festival's vaudeville team, Puke & Snot, the longest-running two-man comedy duo in the country and a headline show at festivals and comedy clubs throughout North America since 1974. Mark's memoir, Call me Puke: a Life on the Dirt Circuit, is an entertaining and fascinating story of his rise to the top. For more information visit www.pukensnot.com
Farm Country Moments, what a sweet read--brings back a ton of memories of my five short years on the farm when I was in high school. Your attention to all the tiny but important little details of farm life is astounding. Makes me want to start reading your whole series.
Beverly Hermes, former farm kid.
As I read the pages, it is my story!
Gary Hoverson, retired dairy farmer, Freeborn County, Minnesota
