Artisanal Farmers From America’s Heartland

From farmer’s markets to community
supported agriculture, artisanal and sustainable farming has exploded
over the past decade. In her new book, Anne Blessing explores the
sustainable farming movement through 20 in-depth profiles of
Midwestern farms. Along the way, she demonstrates how these farmers
have forged relationships with many of Chicago’s most high-profile
chefs, including Rick Bayless, Stephanie Izard, Sarah Stegner, and
Paul Kahan, propelling the sustainable agriculture movement into a
central feature of Chicago’s culinary culture. For tonight’s
event, Blessing will by joined by farmer Abra Berens from Michigan’s
Bare Knuckle Farm.
