I’m excited about my first official “Farm Fresh” book review. Not only is it accurate, it’s complimentary! Thank you, Library Journal! This appeared this week, written by Janet Ross.
“Rev up your transportation and head for the North Carolina countryside—this is one comprehensive and persuasive guide. Local travel writer Daniel paints a charming picture of the attractions of rural life that should motivate even the most dedicated couch potato.
Were you aware that poet Carl Sandburg’s home in Henderson County includes a park and a farm you can visit? Interested in picking your own okra? If you’ve always wanted a powder puff made from sheep’s wool, you can get one at the Good Stuff market in Madison County. You’ll find details for all these activities and more among the locations Daniel has visited and evaluated, organized here by county and into five regions that range from apple country in the mountains to the sandy soil of the Coastal Region and Sandhills. The guide also includes a glossary, information sources, recipes, and an alphabetical list of county-by-county offerings.”
