Come to the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday December 6th to meet Kirsten Lie-Nielson at 1PM. She is a farmer who writes about the ups and downs of running a farm in her newest book So You Want to Be a Modern Homesteader? All the Dirt on Living the Good Life. Come and chat with her about what it's like to live on a self-sufficient farm, and grab a copy of her new book! This is the perfect book for people who are looking to move to the country or start homesteading.
Kirsten Lie-Nielsen is a writer and farmer living on 93 acres in rural Maine. After starting a small hobby homestead with her partner on an abandoned farm with no electricity and running water, Kirsten's endeavors have quickly grown to encompass geese, goats, chickens, bees, ducks, and extensive vegetable and herb gardens. Always intrigued by self-sufficiency and working with her hands, Kirsten enjoys sharing her experiences and the lessons of life on the farm for publications such as Grit, Mother Earth News, Backyard Poultry, and Hobbyfarms.com. Kirsten blogs about her rural adventures at hostilevalleyliving.com, and her first book, The Modern Homesteader's Guide to Keeping Geese, was released in October 2017.
