Poet-in-residence, Pasture-fed Livestock Association
Adam Horovitz is a poet and performer with a particular interest in writing about landscape and mankind’s relationship with the land.
He was the poet-in-residence for the Pasture-fed Livestock Association from 2016-17, staying on four PFLA farms over four seasons and writing about the farms, the farmers and the landscapes he visited. His second collection of poetry, The Soil Never Sleeps (Palewell, 2018), collects the poems from this residency.
According to TS Eliot award-winning poet Phillip Gross, The Soil Never Sleeps is: “Personal journal and public statement, lyric observation and prospectus for radical care of the land … grounded in living the life, and doing the work, day by day, of a place. Unsentimental, many-angled, this is poetry to think with, not to lecture readers but ‘to open them / to the seeds of ideas’ that the earth sorely needs.”
