Read Fresh from the Farm: A Year of Recipes and Stories Online Free - Part cookbook, part memoir, Fresh from the Farm chronicles a year of Susie Middleton’s life on her farm as she nurtures both her seedlings and her soul, weathers life as a farmer, and creates 125 simple recipes that celebrate cooking with the seasons.
The fresh, accessible recipes developed by Susie, former editor in chief of Fine Cooking magazine and author of the best-selling Fast, Fresh & Green, pay homage to the vegetables and fruit she harvests on her rural farm and sells at her farm stand. Woven throughout the tantalizing recipes and luscious photos of food and farm life is Susie’s witty, engaging story of trading in her corporate life for something more meaningful, simple, and satisfying.
Valuable tips for both cooks and aspiring market gardeners are peppered throughout the book, and design ideas for four projects will inspire would-be backyard farmers. Fresh from the Farm is for anyone who enjoys cooking with fresh ingredients and eating seasonally—or anyone who wants to indulge their inner farmer.

This was probably not the best cookbook to read when it's an ice storm outside. For one, you gets hungry. For two, it makes you want to grow things. And damn it..I'm still hungry.
This is a beautiful book. The photos through out it are so pretty that you can use this as a coffee table book.

The layout on the other hand wasn’t very user friendly. The authors background story was written on the side margins,...

A beautifully designed cookbook packed with great images and recipes. But what I loved the most was the stories and side notes in the book. In reminds me of when I sit around and talk to my family about our recipes. Though we always come back to the food, there are also stories and anecdotes that...

This is a wonderful cookbook that showcases farm fresh, in-season ingredients. I very much enjoyed all the beautiful, mouth watering photos. The recipes appear simple and unfussy yet produce show stopping results that would be great for entertaining. I definitely will be trying many of the recipe...
