A memoir of one Minnesota family's quest to build, maintain and protect their organic farm, Turn Here Sweet Corn is a well-written personal account of what it takes to do this. There are mountainous challenges from weather to corporate politics, as well as deep rewards. Diffley takes us through it all in a vivid, emotionally alive and compelling way. As one reviewer said, "[A]n education on organic farming and its importance, as well as a heartfelt love letter to the land."
