Did you know that Missouri has the second largest number of farms in the United States? Missouri farmers grow and raise an amazing variety of foods: vegetables, grains, fruits, meats, dairy products, and more. Missouri Harvest takes you on a tour of all the Show Me State has to offer for those interested in eating and shopping locally, whether you are a committed locavore or just developing an interest. Maddie Earnest and Liz Fathman introduce you to the farmers who raise the food, to the purveyors who bring it to you, the chefs who prepare it, and some of the people who are active in making it all happen through the support of local businesses. Throughout the book, they also provide ideas and suggestions for preparing the great bounty of our state, right down to the recipes provided by some of the folks featured in the book. Each food group has its own chapter, and each is divided by region, which helps the reader navigate the state's farms and ranches. Farmer's markets, grocery stores, country stores, restaurants--let Missouri Harvest be your guide to local farming and local eating. Get a regional look at farming, farming practices, and even some cooking tips and recipes. You will learn that small farmers are an enterprising and optimistic lot who like to say that "Hope springs eternal."
