Read from August 09 to 11, 2010

This is the story of 3 different farmers. Each of them very different in their focus, methodology and region, but all of them with the same basic principles of loving the land and the food it produces.

If you enjoyed The Omnivore's Dilemma, this should go next on your to be read pile. Now that you know why you should support local farms that grow food sustainably, and now that you know why that food is better for you than a box of something off the grocery store shelf, this book can help you dig in a little further. You'll learn more about the local economies that buying local food supports. You'll learn more about dairy farming and ranching and how new varieties of vegetables can be created without splicing genomes.

Told in an engaging and interesting way, you really care for the people who are making these sustainable food practices a reality. A highly recommended book.
