Excerpt from The Farmer's Side: His Troubles and Their Remedy Is the farmer in trouble? To what extent? Is he really poor? How shall we know Is he worse off than men engaged in other lines of work By what rule shall we measure the rate of his progress? Let him but look at the world about him and note the contrasts. Let him hold up a mirror, if you please - a mirror which reflects what has passed, what is passing, and foreshadows what is yet to come. Look and think. Behold, compare, and learn. Follow the guide.

First published in hardcover in 2002, Local Flavors was a book ahead of its time. Now, imported food scares and a countrywide infatuation with fresh, local, organic produce has caught up with this groundbreaking cookbook, available for the first time in paperback. Deborah Madison celebrates the glories of the farmers’ markets of America in a richly illustrated collection of seasonal recipes for a profusion of produce grown coast to coast. As more and more people shun industrially produced foods and instead choose to go local and organic, this is the ideal cookbook to capitalize on a major and growing trend. Local Flavors emphasizes seasonal, regional ingredients found in farmers’ markets and roadside farm stands and awakens the reader to the real joy of making a direct connection with the food we eat and the person who grows it. Deborah Madison’s 350 full-flavored recipes and accompanying menus include dishes as diverse as Pea and Spinach Soup with Coconut Milk; Rustic Onion Tart with Walnuts; Risotto with Sorrel; Mustard Greens Braised with Ginger, Cilantro, and Rice; Poached Chicken with Leeks and Salsa Verde; Soy Glazed Sweet Potatoes; Cherry Apricot Crisp; and Plum Kuchen with Crushed Walnut Topping. Covering markets around the country from Vermont to Hawaii, Deborah Madison reveals the astonishing range of produce and other foods available and the sheer pleasure of shopping for them. A celebration of farmers and their bounty, Local Flavors is a must-have cookbook for anyone who loves fresh, seasonal food simply and imaginatively prepared. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Humus in California Soils (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Humus in California Soils Information and data regarding the nature of the soils of the State have been Obtained through the physical and chemical analyses Of thousands of samples taken according to our directions and sent to our laboratory by farmers throughout California; 'by the examination of samples of a few feet in depth taken by us or other members Of the station staff; and of one hundred soil columns taken to depths of ten or twelve feet from each of the main soil regions of the State, chiefly by the author and his assistant, the late F. E. Johnson. It has been the policy of the California Experiment Station, from the time when Professor Hilgard established it in 1875 to the present time, to respond to the call of farmers for information regarding problems of the farm in all of its branches, and especially those of the soil and its products. The examination of soils has been free to the farmer, and during these years many thousands of samples of soil have been sent to us by them to ascertain whether there be a lack of plant food and a need of fertilizers, whether alkali salts be present and how gotten rid of, or whether there be some other causes of infertility. The samples were for the most part taken according to our directions, and examined as to their physical properties, and as to the approximate amount of humus, lime, and phosphoric acid, and sometimes of potash, short methods for these determinations having been adopted. Where alkali was found to be present in any appreciable amount, the percentage of each salt was determined by a regular analysis. These examinations of soils that came from every part of the State, together with such personal visits as Professor Hilgard and the author were able to make to the main agricultural regions, gave an excellent insight into the agricultural conditions of every part of the State; which has been of very great importance in our work and a special help toward the completion of a soil map of the State, there being no funds available for the prosecution of a soil survey.

With the widespread alarm over the quality of food in recent years, and the growth of the organic movement and its mainstream acceptance, perceptions are changing. With these talks, Steiner created and launched biodynamic farming - a specific form of agriculture which has come to be regarded as premium organic.

Any Fool Can Be a Dairy Farmer

The young James Robertson set out for the beautiful, badger-haunted fields of Devon to turn grass into gold via the medium of milk. It only took an encounter with his first cow to realize that he would need the survival instincts of the SAS if he were to live to appreciate this rural idyll. His cows did not seem to live up to their public image of placid benevolence and created a working environment as ruthless as that of the London advertising agency from which he had escaped. There were cows with sharpshooter hooves; an amorous bull set on enjoying the favors of a neighbor's herd – or even those of the farmer himself, should he turn his back – and the terrible tyranny of a new-born calf. The author’s sharp observations and memory for detail ensure that all these humorous possibilities are fully exploited.
