Growing a Farmer

Posted by kurtwood on October 27th, 2011

My book — Growing a Farmer has been officially released by WW Norton. It has been quite a month, seeing a copy of the book for the first time last month and now traveling around talking about the book.

The book launch party was this past Monday and was a great success. Two hundred and fifty people packed into Chase Jarvis’ photography studio in downtown Seattle to have a glass or two of wine, a plate of tacos made with Kurtwood Farms pork and listen to me ramble on about small farms.

On Tuesday I was at Elliott Bay Books to read from the book to a standing room only crowd. It was the greatest thrill seeing old friends who had heard about the event. Next week I am off to Powell’s In Portland and Village Books in Bellingham. Sure to be great fun at both.

Here is a quick video we made to promote Growing a Farmer. The cows take center stage.
