Farmhouse Revival

Overview


The American farmhouse represents integrity, ingenuity, self-reliance, and agricultural heritage. Today, the farmhouse is a rare survivor from another era that can be found sensitively reinterpreted by artists, carefully preserved by original owners, or functionally maintained by farm-to-table artisanal food producers.

Overview


The American farmhouse represents integrity, ingenuity, self-reliance, and agricultural heritage. Today, the farmhouse is a rare survivor from another era that can be found sensitively reinterpreted by artists, carefully preserved by original owners, or functionally maintained by farm-to-table artisanal food producers. In more than 200 stunning images, Steve Gross and Sue Daley have painstakingly photographed 20 of the most beautifully preserved farmhouses in the northeast. Some are working farmhouses that have been passed down in families for generations; some have been made productive again by a whole new generation of organic farmers. Still others have been rescued from neglect and restored to their former splendor. Each house is accompanied by an overview of the farmhouse owner and how he or she maintains the property. Fans of the farm-to-table movement as well as historic architecture and preservation will find this an intriguing and beautiful read.

Praise for Farmhouse Revival:

“Those interested in a homey, country style of decorating or in home restoration will be inspired.” —Library Journal

“Above all, the greatest joy is just looking at the beautiful time-worn places and appreciating the way those that came before led a happy and fulfilling life of simplicity and utility within their walls. For once you have read this book, you will realize that in many ways, it is the farmhouse that helps to restore us, and not the other way around.” —Preservation.com

 “Buy the book Farmhouse Revival for the photos—for inspiration . . . the authors clearly know architecture and antiques.” —Dan’s Papers
 
“Perusing Farmhouse Revival is a marvelous experience . . . and is sure to make readers wonder what stories the farmhouses in their towns could tell.” —Cleveland Plain Dealer

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Photographers Gross and Daley (Gardens of the Hudson Valley) visit 20 farmhouses located in the Northeastern United States. Many of these dwellings have been restored by the current inhabitants, and their restoration experiences as well as the history of the properties are shared here. The styles reflect the owners' tastes, from the whimsy of Mildred's House to the more formal style in Hudson Bush, and are primarily furnished with family heirlooms and vintage pieces. More than 200 color photographs depict these restored 18th- and 19th-century farmhouses that reflect the vernacular style of their East Coast locations and period architecture from Federal to Arts & Crafts. VERDICT Those interested in a homey, country style of decorating or in home restoration will be inspired by the ways in which these farmhouse owners have transformed these buildings.
