Louis Bromfield: Self Sustaining Garden

Mansfield’s favorite son
He has a plan
To write, have some fun
Then attempt to save the land

Crop rotation is like rebirth
Determined to renew the soil
Determined to have better stewardship

A new kind of pioneer
Not one to rape the land
But one who will stay here
One who creates new land

His father was a farmer
His grandfather was a farmer
His great grandfather was a farmer
His mother hoped for writing

After the University of Cornell
Pulitzer Prize came from Early Autumn

He got rid of pesticides and chemicals of the same
He goes down in the Ohio Agriculture Hall of Fame
