We want to change the way the food system works. We want to know who else here has good ideas about how to do it. This part-travelogue, part-oral history, part-creative exploration of food politics will introduce readers to twenty people working in agriculture and sustainable food production and twenty farm-fresh foods from across the US. Throughout 2009 the authors will visit twenty farms from coast to coast, talking to farmers about their engagement in sustainable food production, public policy and community organizing efforts. Additionally, a single variety of food produced on each farm will be the subject of an investigation into the history of growing, eating and selling that particular food throughout time. The colorfully illustrated book will be introduced with a historical account of farming by a guest author, and will be accompanied by a supplementary website. It is our hope that by example this book will inspire and cultivate a new wave of agrarians. Half of the authors profits will be put into a fund to encourage like-minded documentary and folklore projects.

MEDIA REVIEWS

GRIST
\"My favorite book of the season is Farm Together Now: A Portrait of People, Places, and Ideas for a New Food Movement, by Amy Franceschini and Daniel Tucker. It consists of interviews with a wide range of farmers (and activists) who you haven\'t heard of. Inspiring without being romantic in the least, it advances the whole conversation about sustainable agriculture and access.\" -- Michael Pollan, Grist.org
