Farmer to Farmer "Reading List"

If you are interested in farming systems in the US and abroad, you may be interested in reading one or both of these books: A Farmer for the World: A Biography of Richard Clarence Waybright, and Where the Road Ends: A Home in the Brazilian Rainforest. Both are related to Partners' Farmer to Farmer Program in one way or another.

The first follows the interesting life of Dick Waybright (2010 FTF volunteer to Brazil) in his quest to grow the now-cutting-edge Mason Dixon Farms in Pennsylvania, plus his many agricultural and other adventures abroad.

The second follows the travel adventure of Binka Le Breton and her husband Robin as they move their life to Brazil to set up a farm and home, and eventually create the Iracambi Research Center (2011 FTF host organization) to help conserve Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest.
