CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Once we could fill our grocery carts with cheap and plentiful food, but not anymore. Cheap food has gone the way of cheap oil. Climate change is already reducing crop yields worldwide. The cost of flying in food from far away and shipping it across the country in refrigerated trucks is rapidly becoming unviable. Cars and cows increasingly devour grain harvests, sending prices skyrocketing. More Americans than ever before require food stamps and food pantries just to get by, and a worldwide food crisis is unfolding, overseas and in our kitchens.

We can keep hunger from stalking our families, but doing so will require a fundamental shift in our approach to field and table. A Nation of Farmers examines the limits and dangers of the globalized food system and shows how returning to the basics is our best hope. The book includes in-depth guidelines for:

  • Creating resilient local food systems
  • Growing, cooking, and eating sustainably and naturally
  • Becoming part of the solution to the food crisis
The book argues that we need to make self-provisioning, once the most ordinary of human activities, central to our lives. The results will be better food, better health, better security, and freedom from corporations that don’t have our interests at heart.

This is critical reading for anyone who eats and cares about high-quality food.

Recommended Product for Wiser Living: Today, more than ever before, our society is seeking ways to live more conscientiously. To help bring you the very best inspiration and information about greener, more sustainable lifestyles, Mother Earth News is recommending books and products to its readers. For nearly 40 years, Mother Earth News has been North America’s “Original Guide to Living Wisely,” creating books and magazines for people with a passion for self-reliance and a desire to live in harmony with nature.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

This one-of-a-kind cookbook will transport you to a time where things were simpler, and food was always tasty and satisfying. Each of the recipes contained in this book is a reminder of how good food tastes in rural America, and will prompt you to create the dishes you grew up eating.

Among it's over 100 recipes, you'll find simple dishes like corn pudding and fried okra, as well as family favorites such as chicken friend steak with gravy and home-style pot roast. Leave room for lemon-friend bluegill and pond perch casserole, and don't forget the stuffed roast possum! Of course, you'll want to try a hand at molasses popcorn balls and wild blackberry pie.

About the authors: Rolland Love and his family lived off the land in the Ozark Mountains. Growing up, he roamed the Ozark Mountains, floated it rivers, and provided food for the family. "We grew vegetable, hunted game, and enjoyed the rivers' bounty," he says. "We were self-sufficient. And there was no need to travel, we already lived in paradise." He is the author of An Ozark Mountains Blue Hole Murder Mystery, a young-adult mystery adventure set in the Ozarks, and its sequel An Ozark Mountains River's Edge Murder Mystery. He has also published short fiction in numerous outdoors publications. He likes to fish for smallmouth bass and create fun stories to tell his grandchildren.

Mary-Lane Kamberg was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and has spent most of her life in the suburbs. She has never eaten squirrel brains and doesn't want to. She does like to eat, however, and is "game" for almost anything. She is the author of The 'I don't Know How to Cook' Book. She, her husband and daughters have spent many summers at the Lake of the Ozarks swimming, water skiing, fishing for crappie and visiting grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

The Salatin family farm, known as Polyface and located in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, is one of the nation's premier ecological farms and has been featured in countless print, radio and video media. Exemplifying local food systems and imbedded community-based agriculture, the farm caught the attention of Michael Pollan in his runaway New York Times best-seller The Omnivore's Dilemma (when Salatin refused to ship T-bone steaks to New York).

Behind the glitz, however, the farm struggles with a labyrinth of government regulations and cultural perceptions that terrorize the antidote to mad cows, avian influenza, and food fears. The solution is simple: allow freedom for traditional food growing and purchasing choices.

This book brings to life, with humor and verve, the everyday conflict between the entrenched industrial food system and the local artisanal neighbor-friendly farmer-entrepreneur.

Joel Salatin is also the author of: Pastured Poultry Profit$, Salad Bar Beef, You Can Farm, Family Friendly Farming, Holy Cows and Hog Heaven.

The third edition of The Beginner's Guide to Preserving Food at Home has been completely revised and updated. It includes dozens of recipes, from basic food preservation techniques to jams and marmalades, pickles and sauerkraut and even preserving herbs.

You don't need a lot of time or years of experience to preserve garden-fresh fruits and vegetables. Simple step-by-step instructions give you the confidence and know-how to freeze, dry, can, store and brine the abundance from your CSA share or summer garden.

Grate and freeze excess zucchini; it will be perfect in quick breads and muffins all winter long. Pick up a crate of less-than-perfect tomatoes at the farmer's market and preserve them in jars of spicy salsa. Turn the overflow of green beans from your CSA farm share into tasty dilly beans to eat all winter or give as holiday gifts. Dry mushrooms, make ketchup, can nectarines and make fruit leather.

This user-friendly book includes charts and lists that will help you successfully preserve foods, as well as a recipe section for using your preserved food in delicious meals. With these techniques and recipes you will be eating local all year long.

About the author: Janet Chadwick has been a teacher, and has authored several books including No Time to Cook, How to Live on Almost Nothing and The Busy Persons' Guide to Preserving Food. As a teacher, her special focus was on cooking for people with special diets. She lives in Florida.
