Since approximately 1997, I have been helping my parents in both office and hands-on activities with the cows and land. I like doing both and they always need help. However, I am the one who has the most experience with food preparation and I have spent the last 15 years learning and practicing canning, drying, freezing and preparing meals all with produce from our garden. I have taught people how to do these things, but I have always dreamed of writing a cook book of sustainable food preparation to encourage others to grow their own food.
