Years ago, hard working Louisiana farmer Jedidiah Jenkins has a vision which gives him the basis to create the Jedidiah Seed - a stem cell blueprint that was able to adapt to surrounding tissue, creating transplantable limbs and organs that literally grow on trees (and bushes, and roots). Many years later, Jedidiah's son Ezekiel and his family return to the farm to join the family business. However, everyone is after the secret of the Jedidiah Seed, and the kindly old farmer may not be what he seems...
Farmhand contains examples of:
- Alliterative Name: Jedidiah Jenkins.
- The Alcoholic: Ezekiel, who has been two years sober that the start of the book.
- Badass Preacher: Pastor John "Tree" Moore, Ezekiel's godfather and Jedediah's former best friend.
- Biotechnology: The Jedidiah Seed is a stem cell blueprint that adapts to surrounding tissue, allowing one to literally grow limbs and organs for transplants on trees.
