This story was reviewed in the Barnes & Nobel Sci-Fi & Fantasy Short Fiction Roundup: March 2018.

This strange and moving story by Kathrin Köhler is set in a society where people exploit peculiar beasts called “farms” for food. The farms are alive and sentient, but kept in terrible conditions while the food that grows on them is harvested. One girl learns to communicate with the farm her family owns, but in this strictly traditional and patriarchal society, the bond is not tolerated, and its consequences are severe. A beautiful, incisive read.
