I.T. Geek to Farm Girl Freak: Leaving High Tech for Greener Pastures by S.A. Molteni


I loved this book!

Having enjoyed reading ‘Her Name Was Half Calf’ I could not resist reading the story of how the author transformed from I.T. Geek to Farm Girl. This story, and the lessons she has, and is still learning about the variety of animals and birds she and her husband look after, make this a very entertaining story.

I personally loved the way that it is written truthfully to enable those who would like to make the transition themselves to get a realistic feel for what it is really like on a farm, and those of us who have followed their dreams like she did, can enjoy the feeling that we are not alone.

Humorous, entertaining, very sad at times, but most of all addictive reading.


About the Author: S.A. Molteni is a retired systems engineer. She is also currently a hobby farmer, avid traveler and an author of several award-winning short stories. She lives on a small homestead with her husband and a menagerie of farm animals.

About the Book: Have you ever wanted to ditch the nine-to-five job and move as far away as possible from the rat race?

Have you ever just wanted peace and quiet in a rural setting away from the sprawl of suburbia?

Have you found yourself daydreaming about pasture lands and farm animals on a daily basis?

That’s exactly what the author found herself contemplating – more often then not – while working at a high tech job in Seattle.

With her husband 3,000 miles away in Florida and the passing of her father, she knew it was time to make some serious changes in her life. She was ready for an adventure, but little did she know what lay in store for her at the ‘fixer upper’ farmhouse she and her husband would soon become the owners of.

S.A. Molteni has spent over thirty years in the Information Technology field working for various Fortune 500 companies. During those years, she and her husband had always dreamed of living on a farm once they became retired from the rat race.

This collection of essays follows the author in her sometimes humorous transition from “I.T. Geek to Farm Girl Freak” and depicts the lessons that are learned along the way once farm animals become a large part of her life.
