Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is one comprehensive and persuasive guide. . . . Daniel paints a charming picture of the attractions of rural life that should motivate even the most dedicated couch potato. . . . A delightful, informative read."

-Library Journal "The perfect reference for planning day trips throughout the state this summer or for figuring out how to break up a long car ride, especially if you have children to entertain."

-Raleigh News & Observer "If you want an easy by-county and by-region resource for locally grown, fresh food, this is your guidebook. Maps, photographs, and an exhaustive list bring to life the state's burgeoning farm movement."

-Winston-Salem Monthly "Includes more than 425 entries that showcase various produce stands, farmers' markets, wineries, children-friendly pumpkin patches and corn mazes, pick-your-own orchards, restaurants, bed-and-breakfasts and agricultural festivals. The book also includes 20 original recipes from across the state."

-Asheville Citizen-Times "Diane Daniel turns the locavore philosophy into something truly useful and delicious. Her exhaustively researched guidebook will make you want to jump in the car and plan an entire getaway celebrating the family farm. Pick your own okra, choose a Christmas tree, watch sorghum being turned into molasses or goat's milk into cheese, then eat dinner at a restaurant whose farm-to-fork ideals are more than just hype. Diane brings sustainability to life and entices you to experience it for yourself."--Joe Yonan, food and travel editor of The Washington Post and author of Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One

"Diane has absolutely captured the nature of agritourism and how it partners with the local food movement in North Carolina. This book is like a 'who done it'--you can't wait to see what's on the next page, and you don't want to put it down! She paints a literal picture of 'value-added' agriculture food, lodging, and farm fun in our state."--Martha Glass, manager, Agritourism Office, North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services

"I hope Diane isn't finished traveling because we need a book like this for every state. What a fabulous bridge to North Carolina's farm-food connections. Thank you, thank you, Diane, for taking localization to a new level."--Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farm, Swoope, Virginia

"Diane has written a wonderful, must-have guide for travel in North Carolina. I can't wait to pack the kids in the car and go!"--Andrea Reusing, chef-owner of Lantern restaurant, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

"This is a terrific book and a great resource for both travelers and locals who want to explore North Carolina's culturally rich farms and local foodways. It will stay in my vehicle as a much-used reference guide."--Marcie Cohen Ferris, author of Matzoh Ball Gumbo: Culinary Tales of the Jewish South

"This wonderful book is packed with a tremendous amount of information that will be extremely useful to the cultural traveler. Daniel shares her experiences and recommendations in a delightful way, whetting readers' appetites to see, taste, and explore more. This is a great tool for the hungry and curious North Carolina traveler."--Greta A. Lint, president, Greta Anita Lint LLC Tourism, Writing, and Consulting Services, based in North Carolina

Synopsis:
