Farm Life

We trade in antiquarian books and documents that reflect the history of farming and farmers in the USA.  Our interest ranges from the survival skills of Native Americans and colonial planters through 19th-century truck farms and small farms in the east, through the  westward migration of settlers and ranchers, to the backyard farmer feeding his family.  Life on the farm means clearing land, raising crops, animal husbandry, farm equipment, homemaking, and family life.  Our intent is to pay homage to the farmer, the homesteader, the farmer’s wife and helpmate, and to the thousands of immigrant farm workers who toil for mere subsistence.  As we follow the paper trail of agricultural history, we study and document the everyday lives of America's farming families.
