about

Can we ever really know what we’re eating? Is it possible to walk away from today’s industrial, processed-food pipeline? Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver and her family reveal that the answer to both questions is yes. They have chronicled a year in which they vowed to buy only locally produced food, grow it themselves or learn to live without it.

"Folksy and smart.... Cogent and illuminating...this book captures the pulse of the farm the deep gratification it provides." (The New Yorker)
