Meet your local farmer! Published for the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's September 1609 journey along the river that today bears his name, this fascinating illustrated portrait celebrates the local farms—and farmers—in one of the country's most scenic and storied regions, once known as the Breadbasket of America. Hudson River Valley Farms brings to life the renaissance of food producers who have developed the region as a source of artisanal cheeses, grass-fed beef, and first-rate organic fruits and vegetables.

Stunning photography and short, evocative essays take you on a rare, behind-the-scenes journey to forty-four farms from Westchester County to the Capital District of Albany, and include the colorful maverick entrepreneurs behind the striking scenery. The book also includes a directory of nearly 100 local farmers' markets, directions to the featured farms, and an introduction by the region's popular U.S. Congressman, Maurice Hinchey.
