About this Book:

Family dairy farms are disappearing in Maine and with them, a way of life. Author Trudy Chambers Price has captured the daily joys and struggles of the family farm in a way that ensures this Maine way of life will not be forgotten.

Price and her husband raised two sons and hundreds of cows on Craneland Farm in Central Maine. The work was never-ending and exhausting, but also exhilarating and rewarding. The bittersweet memoir covers two decades of dairy farming. Chambers writes of the daily trials of haying, cow breeding, and milking against a backdrop of gentle and entertaining rural life. She introduces kind neighbors, eccentric neighbors, visiting city folk, and loveable pets. The Cows Are Out! is a tribute to hard-working family farmers and Maine’s historical and cultural heritage.
