Growing Tomorrow

Pritchard urges readers to adapt the lifestyle on a wider scale by visiting farmers’ markets, subscribing to CSA programs or growing their own produce.

Go behind the scenes with seventh-generation farmer Forrest Pritchard in his one-year journey to search for a “farmers’ market dream team,” compiled in his second book, Growing Tomorrow. It shares the stories of 18 U.S. farmers who farm using sustainable agriculture practices, even with unpredicted challenges and daily risks, and why it’s worth it. Included is each farmer’s favorite recipe (or three) that highlights the best and tastiest way to prepare the produce they work so hard to grow and raise: chocolate-avocado-grapefruit mousse from a California citrus farm, wild rice meatballs from a rice farm in Minnesota or honey-bourbon ice cream from bee wranglers in Dallas. More than just making the recipes, Pritchard urges readers to adapt the lifestyle on a wider scale by visiting farmers’ markets, subscribing to CSA programs or growing their own produce.
