Description

Meet the local farmers who feed America--in stories, photos, and 50 recipes

When Forrest Pritchard went looking for the unsung heroes of local, sustainable food, he found them at 18 exceptional farms all over the country.

In Detroit, Aba Ifeoma of D-Town Farm dreams of replenishing the local "food desert" with organic produce. On Cape Cod, Nick Muto stays afloat and eco-friendly by fishing with the seasons. And in Washington State, fourth-generation farmer Robert Hayton confides, "This farm has been rescued by big harvests. . . . For every one great season, though, you've got ten years of tough."

With more than 50 mouthwatering recipes and over 250 photographs, this unique cookbook captures the struggles and triumphs of the visionary farmers who are Growing Tomorrow.
