Farmsteads of the California Coast: With Recipes from the Harvest by Sarah Henry

Farmsteads of the California Coast introduces readers to a dozen diverse growers and their dynamic agricultural ventures in some of the most scenic farm locations in the country.

From row crop farmers and shellfish harvesters to water buffalo ranchers and coffee growers, this visually-rich book celebrates the best of farmstead bounty, including 'beyond organic' greens, briny oysters, creamy goat cheese, crisp heirloom apples, luscious buffalo gelato and juicy u-pick strawberries.

Award-winning food writer Sarah Henry profiles these innovative farmsteads, their sustainable practices and flavorful products, and the unique individuals behind their thriving success.

Acclaimed cookbook photographer Erin Scott captures each farmstead's essential nature in lush photo spreads that document the inherent beauty in daily farm routines and celebrates farmstead people and their products.

Inviting readers to experience the harvest firsthand, the book also features twenty-four recipes inspired by farm-grown ingredients.
