Lyons Press and Forrest Pritchard are proud to announce The Face Of Our Farms: 18 Extraordinary Farmers—And 100 Of Their Recipes—That Will Forever Change How You Eat, to be published in June 2015. Pritchard will travel with photographer Molly Peterson (Flavor Magazine, Foodshed), visiting sustainable farms across the country and documenting farmers’ work through story, portrait and recipes. Producers range from sustainable lobstermen in Cape Cod to urban farming in Detroit, to raw milk cheese in Colorado and organic citrus in California. The project will also feature photos of prepared dishes, recipes gleaned from the farmers themselves.
