Fields of Plenty

A Farmer’s Journey in Search of Real Food and the People Who Grow It

Overview

From the publisher

In the face of supersizing and a fast-food nation, a growing community of organic farmers and food artisans are producing sustainable nourishment that is respectful to the land and rich in heritage, flavor, and passion.

In Fields of Plenty, respected farmer, teacher, and ecology advocate Michael Ableman seeks out these innovative and committed farmers to reveal how the fruits of those who till the soil go beyond taste.

From a fig farm in California to an urban farm in Chicago that sustains an entire community, his odyssey takes him to farmers who are trying to answer questions of sustenance philosophically and, most importantly, in practice. This beautifully written memoir reveals the power of food as a personal and cultural force.
