When Novella Carpenter---captivated by the idea of backyard self-sufficiency as the daughter of two back-to-the-earth hippies---moves to a ramshackle house in inner-city Oakalnd and discovers a weedchoke, garbage-strewn abandoned lot next door, she closes her eyes and pictures heirloom tomatoes, a beehive, and a chicken coop.

What starts out as a few egg-laying chickens leads to turkeys. geese, and ducks. And not long after, along came two 300-pound pigs. And no, these charming and eccentric animals aren't pets. Novella is raising these animals for dinner.

An unforgettably charming memoir, full of hilarious moments, facinating farmer's tips, and a great deal of heart, Farm City offers a beautiful meditation on what we give up to live the way we do today.
