  1. I’m interested in having you speak at one of our meetings. I have a meeting of farmers on Nov 6th in Chambersburg, PA. If that doesnt work, other times are possible.
    I can be reached at 717-262-5314 or by email

  2. Hello,

    I am with South Dakota Specialty Producers Association. We are looking for a Keynote Speaker for the first weekend in November 2016. What are your fees? Thank you.

  3. Dear Mr. Pritchard:
    I am writing to ask whether you would be interested in reviewing a manuscript that is under consideration for publication with the University of Iowa Press. It’s a study of the circumstances that enable and constrain the local foods economy, based in eastern Iowa but widely applicable. I’d be glad to give you more particulars if you are interested.

  4. Hello!
    No request to book, I just wanted to say that I got to hear Forrest speak last night in Lebanon, PA, and was so glad that I did.
    Then tonight my son sent me this article about ocean farming: low-impact, restorative, sustainable- This needs to be in your next book on farms across America, Forrest!

    Thanks for all you are doing,
    Elizabeth Lingle

  5. I left a message for you on FB messenger but not sure if that is the best way to contact you. So sorry to have missed your presentation in York, PA. Reading your book now. Son has dairy farm in Western NY. Cattle are grass fed. Our grandson is in Army Reserves and is a college student very interested in sustainable farming. I was hoping to purchase 2 signed books as gifts for them. I will gladly pay postage. It would be great to visit your farm.
