"Part cookbook, part memoir, Fresh from the Farm chronicles a year of Susie Middleton's life on her farm as she nurtures both her seedlings and her soul, weathers life as a farmer, and creates 125 simple recipes that celebrate cooking with the seasons. The fresh, accessible recipes developed by Susie, former editor in chief of Fine Cooking magazine and author of the best-selling Fast, Fresh & Green, pay homage to the vegetables and fruit she harvests on her rural farm and sells at her farm stand. Woven throughout the tantalizing recipes and luscious photos of food and farm life is Susie's witty, engaging story of trading in her corporate life for something more meaningful, simple, and satisfying. Valuable tips for both cooks and aspiring market gardeners are peppered throughout the book, and design ideas for four projects will inspire would-be backyard farmers. Fresh from the Farm is for anyone who enjoys cooking with fresh ingredients and eating seasonally--or anyone who wants to indulge their inner farmer."

"This book is the story of one woman's journey as she sought a simpler life, bought a farm on a rural island, and started planting and growing vegetables in the hopes of doing something she loves--growing and cooking food. The result are these 125 accessible, simple, delicious recipes"

Living Nice Life on the Farm

The photos are beautiful, colorful, and calming. Furthers my fantasy of living on a farm. I think, though, that I would only enjoy living on the Michigan farm during the lovely Spring, Summer and Fall. The Winter would be too quiet, gray, cold for me on the farm. The recipes were nice, but the farm photos were what I really enjoyed in this book.
