About Farmer-ish

When my hoe tinkled against the stones, that music echoed to the woods and the sky, and was an accompaniment to my labor which yielded an instant and immeasurable crop.
~Henry David Thoreau
In recent years, many are finding themselves more interested in growing food, becoming makers, and living more connectedly to nature and their local farming communities. At Farmer-ish, our goal is to provide engaging and educational essays for those interested in doing things like raising chickens, gardening, canning, and sewing. Along the way, we will offer poetry, photography, and creative nonfiction, making Farmer-ish a journal that lives in between farming and the arts--a place we know so well here on our small farm in beautiful Maine, where our family devotes our time to farming, making, writing, and playing beautiful music. 

Since it's launch during the pandemic in 2020, the Farmer-ish journal has been viewed tens of thousands of times by people all over the world. We have published award-winning writers, first-time writers, and many farmers, gardeners, and makers. 

Your pledge helps support the online journal, which is free to everyone, as well as our media efforts and print annual. Your pledge helps us share the voices of farmers, makers, and writers who have information to share and important stories to tell. Your pledge helps keep our online journal free to the public and helps keep the submission process free.
