The Soil Never Sleeps: Poems By Adam Horowitz

The Soil Never Sleeps: Poems By Adam Horowitz

The Soil Never Sleeps: Poems By Adam Horowitz

Poetry from a Year on Four British Farms...

Adam Horowitz was the Pasture Fed Livestock Association's poet in residence for a year, staying on four of their farms, just like ours here at Eversfield, over four seasons. The Soil Never Sleeps searches for an understanding of our complex interactions with the natural world and weaves the farmers' voices into the poems.

"The earth moves faster than we can comprehend," he writes, "so seek a segment, find a strand of it that you can love. Listen to the movement in one hedge. Attune to it. See what it will give. Make no demand."

    The Pasture-fed Livestock Association (PfLA) encourages farmers to raise their ruminant animals wholly on grazed and conserved , bio-diverse pasture and forage, their natural diet - bringing benefits to the environment, to animal welfare and to human health.


    The Association's Pasture for Life certification mark ensure that produce displaying it has been raised to the detailed standards that underwrite it.


    Pasture for Life farmers can be found from Orkney to Cornwall and from Cumbria to Kent and they believe that, in the words of the American farmer-poet Wendell Berry, "Farming should be a conversation with nature".
