Fresh eggs. Grandmother's pickling jars. Backyard orchards. Return to the good life with this inspiring volume. Farmers, chefs, beekeepers, florists, food activists and foragers from different parts of the world tell their stories and share their dishes. Recipes pair with anecdotes and illustrations; be it Tom Mountz of Happy Cat Farm telling a tale of heirloom seeds in Pennsylvania, Edgmere Farm in New York transforming the concrete plot of a once abandoned parking lot into a lush organic farm, or the chefs at Stedsans creating a masterpiece of a meal in a sustainable kitchen without electricity in the woods of Sweden, Farmlife offers a story for every palate.
