Explore the Coast of California, Map Local Farms, and Meet a Dozen Diverse Growers

"A terrific book about some of my favorite farms." -Michael Pollan, author, activist, and professor

"A true celebration of meaningful work and beauty--the values that are at the heart of these farmsteads are the values we all must learn." -Alice Waters, James Beard award-winning chef

Featuring some of the most scenic farm locations in the country, Farmsteads of the California Coast introduces readers to local growers and their dynamic agricultural ventures. Paired with dozens of farm-inspired food recipes from the Golden State, this beautiful California cookbook sets out to reveal the inherent beauty in daily farm routines.

The ultimate farm-to-table cookbook celebrating organic farmers and their products. From boutique row crop farmers and coffee growers, to ranch raised water buffalo gelato and perfectly-grown ripe berries, Farmsteads of the California Coast captures each independent farm's essential nature and philosophy. Inside, award-winning duo, Sarah Henry and Erin Scott, profile innovative farmsteads, sustainable practices, flavorful products, and the unique individuals behind their thriving success.

For fans of local cookbooks and Michael Pollan books. You don't have to embark on a homesteading expedition to have your own farm-to-table kitchen. Farmsteads of the California Coast invites readers to taste the harvest firsthand with twenty-four recipes inspired by local farm-grown ingredients. This visually-rich book celebrates the best of farmstead bounty, including "beyond organic" greens, briny oysters, and:

  • Creamy goat cheese
  • Crisp heirloom apples
  • Juicy u-pick strawberries
  • And more

If you enjoy farm books, farming books, farm life books, or even homestead books--like the Magnolia Table cookbook, Malibu Farm, or the Five Marys Ranch Raised Cookbook--then you'll love Farmsteads of the California Coast.
