FAM­ILY

Successful Farming - - CONTENTS -

Billi J. Miller was a city girl when she met Dean, a fourth-gen­er­a­tion cat­tle and grain pro­ducer from east-cen­tral Al­berta, Canada. When they mar­ried, she moved to his fam­ily farm.

As Miller got to know her new neigh­bors, she wrote a book about the of­ten-over­looked role of the tra­di­tional farmwife. “I wanted it to serve as an in­ti­mate and culi­nary por­trayal of this area and the amaz­ing women in it,” she says.

Farmwives in Pro­file: 17 Women, 17 Ques­tions About Their Lives fea­tures Miller’s neigh­bors. It in­cludes their an­swers to her ques­tions, beau­ti­ful pho­to­graphs, and their fa­vorite recipes.

Her sec­ond book, Farmwives 2: An In­spir­ing Look at the Lives of the New Cana­dian Farmwives, was re­leased in March and fea­tures 24 women from all across Canada. “It fea­tures women from all dif­fer­ent kinds of farms and re­flects their vary­ing views on the role of the farmwife,” Miller says.
