Books by Helen Brody

New Hampshire From Farm to Kitchen New Hampshire: From Farm to Kitchen
(Hippocrene Books. NY, 2004)
285 pages, soft cover, $18.95 ISBN: 0781810213

In New Hampshire: From Farm to Kitchen, Helen Brody profiles 30 of the Granite State's most important working farms. They include multigenerational farms and their methods for preserving land and heritage; farms using progressive pest and soil management techniques, whether it be Integrated Pest Management or organic farming; Community Supported Agriculture farms, where community members pre-buy a crop to guarantee income for the small farmer; and farms where those searching for a more fulfilling life have found a second career. Quick and easy recipes, using each the farm's raw ingredients, make the direct, and often overlooked, connection between the farmer who grows the food and the cook who prepares it. The forward is written by Stephen H. Taylor, New Hampshire's Commissioner of Agriculture, Markets, & Food.
