The Old Home Place

The Story of a Kansas Farm

Authored by Joy Lominska

This book relates the history of a small farm, including the changes in the land, the flora and fauna, and the people residing there. Beginning with the days when the land was hunting grounds for the Kansa Indians and then the Delaware Reserve, this is the story of the forty acres of degraded prairie in northeast Kansas that the author and her husband purchased in 1976. Since then, the farm has been in the forefront of the organic, sustainable, and local foods movements, returning to its roots as a diverse family farm. The book documents the economic and agricultural changes that the land has endured and gives hope for a new agricultural future, with small farms once again contributing significantly to the local food supply. The many historic photos illustrate how the farm and its occupants have changed over the last 140 years.
