Farms of Cape Cod, by photographer Stephanie Foster, brings
readers to the farms and farmers cultivating the finest fruit, flowers, produce,
oysters, herbs, eggs and honey in this historic region. The farms create beautiful
landscapes, provide nutritious food, and connect us to the land.
As the desire for
local, organically grown food flourishes and the locavore movement grows, it is
important to know where our food comes from. Farms of Cape Cod reacquaints us with
our cultural heritage and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the wonders of farming.
Twenty-eight unique farms are profiled, with harvests ranging from cranberries,
lavender, and grapes to livestock, holly, and shellfish. Each farm's address and
operating information is provided.
The beautifully illustrated book also offers Tips from the Top: Farmers' proven ideas on planting, growing and cooking.

The first review is in and it's a hit. Netgallery says, "This beautifully
photographed book explores the farms of Cape Cod, and everything they produce –
from vegetables, meat, wine and lavender and more. Cooking advice is also given.
Much more than eye candy, this book is both beautiful on the coffee table and useful
in the kitchen."
