Harvest: An Adventure into the Heart of America's Family Farms
Nourishing. I finished reading Richard Horan’s book, Harvest: An Adventure into the Heart of America's Family Farms, on the same day I picked up the first CSA veggie box of the season from the family farm my family has supported for years through our participation in what they harvest for our dinner table. Horan describes his journey across America to harvest one crop or another from ten different family farms. These farmers welcome Horan into their lives for a short time, and he relates their story with wit and insight. Readers who like real food and want to visit with a series of farmers will find that this book is the perfect meal. Now to prepare tonight’s supper: something with the just-picked ramps, asparagus, lettuces, radishes, dandelion greens and bok choy. Rice will be involved. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Harvest from amazon.com.
