Product Description

Review

"Frank takes the reader into the fields, where a pair of good clippers can make or break a man, and describes the intricate methods used to cut and dry the product to ensure good quality... Investigative research coupled with personal reflections on a controversial arena of American farm production."-Kirkus Reviews Kirkus Reviews "Pot Farm is a simultaneously beautiful, dark and life-affirming story."-John Warner, Inside Higher Ed -- John Warner Inside Higher Ed "This engaging memoir chronicles the unusual route the author and his wife took to mental rehabilitation after Frank's mother's grueling, months-long battle with cancer: they took up residence on a medical-marijuana farm in Northern California... A highly entertaining tale."-David Pitt, Booklist -- David Pitt Booklist "Thriving amidst a hilariously motley crew of recovered drug addicts, hippies, users and business people, Frank shows us how the farm works from the first bud to the delivery of the product. Lots of fun, and high time that everyone had a closer look at this fascinating industry."-Caroline Leavitt, Dame: For Women Who Know Better -- Caroline Leavitt Dame: For Women Who Know Better "Clearly Pot Farm is a world of uncertainty filled with people who want to help others and with people who want to help themselves; it is our world distilled. And Frank creates this world in a way that can stimulate a reader intellectually while at once offering readers who want to experience the emotional richness that surrounds and inhabits the people of the world he shows us a chance to do that too."-Brandon Davis Jennings, Third Coast Magazine -- Brandon Davis Jennings Third Coast Magazine "Frank delivers his experiences through a wonderful narrative that stands in reality, but weaves a story like a work of fiction."-Nathan Reynolds, Big Muddy -- Nathan Reynolds Big Muddy
