What folks are saying about the book:
Birke on the Farm is the most beautiful and articulate book I have ever seen. The graphics are brilliantly vibrant, the message is signature Birke and the love and passion that embraces.Birke on the Farm is a labor of love. It is an honor to own Birke's masterpiece of many thought provoking hours of emotional dedication to organic farming and a healthier way to live as humans, to respect the planet we call home and the animals we share it with.......Birke on the Farm is a wonderful book for children and adults as well. What impacted me the most is Birke's inspiration and integrity........Birke is destined to be a powerful voice in the organic
farming movement as he gets older and the opportunity to own the first of
Birke's many books is huge. - Douglas Novack
Birke, I have received the book, and love it. I will be advising all my
friends to purchase many, for birthday and Christmas or any season gifts. Nice
book!! - Rose Culbreth
“Birke on the Farm: The Story of a Boy’s Search for Real Food” follows Birke
from curious third-grader to full-blown activist. Whimsically illustrated by
Wynnie Gea, the book has plenty of visual interest for pre-readers and a simple
yet powerful message for older kids. This is a story not only about the
importance of eating real food, but also about the value of kids speaking out
and making a difference. -Spoonfed Blog (see entire review here)
In the beautifully illustrated book, Baehr tells the story of how a simple
Internet news story on mercury found in high fructose corn syrup sparked his
journey down the "rabbit hole" that is the industrialized food industry. The
information he read impacted him so profoundly that his dreams of becoming an
NFL player quickly turned to aspirations to own and operate an organic farm when
he thought that he could impact the world more as a farmer than an athlete.
