Seedtime: On the History, Husbandry, Politics and Promise of Seeds


Quail Hill Farm’s Director, Farmer and Poet Scott Chaskey just published his second non-fiction book, Seedtime: On the History, Husbandry, Politics and Promise of Seeds.  Scott’s newly-released book examines the worldwide changes in bio-diversity as it affects our food supply. Both a celebration and a call to action, Seedtime will renew your enthusiasm towards nature and local food.

Land is for [Chaskey] soil and metaphor, a living thing, a livelihood — an idea. His land — the land beneath us all — is his lens on the largest questions: How ought we to act in the world; who do we wish to be? Rarely have we been gifted a working farmer who so firmly clenches in his root system the roles of poet, historian, scholar, and philosopher, but I’ll say this: The yield here is extraordinary,” Carl Safina, author of The View from Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World.
