Farms of Cape Cod
by Stephanie Foster
 
     

Lavender, Horses, Vineyards, Oysters, Flowers, Cranberries and the farmers
who bring us this bounty.

 
     

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. Size: 11" x 8 1/2".  Hard Cover,  ISBN:   9780764344329. Illustrations:  266 color photos;  $24.99  Available June 2013

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."
