coverssingle-1 for upload.jpgOur first publication is Harvesting History: Amherst, Massachusetts, Farms 1700 to 2010.  The richly illustrated 343 pages of this high quality paperback book give voice to Amherst’s farmers and their families at a time when it is important for the general public to be aware of our local food supply and our farmers’ need for community support. We are grateful to the many writers, artists, individuals and institutions that have contributed original material for use in this volume in support of our efforts to record varied voices and views of Amherst’s rich cultural and agricultural history. This book includes colorful illustrations, photos, poems, and works of art. It is intended to appeal to the general reader and anyone who likes to eat.
