Rural Reflections with John Quimby


quimbypic.jpgFrom life in the city to living in the country. That's how John Quimby describes his transition from commercial radio and television work in Santa Barbara California to organic farming in rural Prince Edward Island. He and his family live on Dunn Creek Farm near Murray Harbour North. He's been blogging about making the leap into farming on PEI in 2008. He's also been collecting some tape that we're calling "Reflections from Rural PEI".
