As factory farming continues to dominate food production, a growing movement insists that a hands-on connection to food and the land that produces it cannot be set aside. In Grown & Gathered, Matt and Lentil Purbrick present a sumptuously photographed guide to living alongside nature and returning to an ancient way of life. 365 days of notes from the authors will help you read the environment as the seasons change, and detailed guides to growing plants and raising animals will ensure that you build your farming practice on a stable foundation. True to the ancient way of life the authors seek to rediscover, Grown & Gathered also includes a chapter on the nuances of trading the goods you produce, rather than relying on monetary exchange. Finally, nearly one hundred recipes for everything from staples to full meals offer delicious ways to prepare the food you have produced from the ground up.
