The Farm that Feeds Usquarto
Where does our food come from? What role do farms play? What’s it like to be a farmer? In this charmingly illustrated book, follow a farm throughout the year to discover how the farmer grows fresh and tasty food for us to eat in a sustainable and natural way.
Explore the workings of a small-scale, organic family farm and experience the rhythm of farm life. In the spring, visit the chicken coop, till the fields, and tour the farm machinery. When summer comes, plant corn, meet the pollinators, and head to the county fair. In the fall, make pies and preserves, harvest pumpkins, and put the fields to sleep. Winter activities include trimming and pruning the orchard, seed shopping, and baking bread.
Through this colorful and intimate look at life on a small-scale farm, children will learn not only how the farm feeds us, but also how we can support the farmers who pick our carrots and raise the cows for our milk. A glossary defines key sustainable farming terms.
