Arlo Crawford grew up on New Morning Farm, his family's farm in rural Pennsylvania. He has written for the New York Time Magazine and Gastronomica and has worked in book publishing, at art museums, and as a vegetable seller. His lives with his wife in San Francisco.
“When I was still working at the museum, every project had a checklist, a clear set of milestones. I worked until I satisfied these requirements, and then I put the project away. On the farm, though, we were immersed in the summer, a wide, warm ocean with no shore in sight and no landmarks to swim toward. Now we rested in that same ocean, floating as it moved around us.”
