A concern for the environment and a desire to better understand where our food comes from are reflected in today's collective consciousness; millions of people are eager to learn more about the local food movement. Many want to take the movement even farther by growing their own food, composting, and keeping backyard chickens. Visit California Farms, by Southern California local Erin Harris, offers readers options for both education and recreation and is a guide to only the most worthwhile destinations, from upscale B&Bs set among picturesque vineyards to working cattle ranches that offer a genuine cowboy/cowgirl experience. While farm vacation guides have been published for other states in the U.S., no such book covering California--our nation's largest agricultural producer--is currently in circulation. Visit California Farms provides valuable information to parents yearning to teach their children important life skills, outdoors enthusiasts who want to expand their repertoire of experiences, twenty-somethings looking for an affordable vacation, couples in search of new travel experiences, adventurous foodies, hobby gardeners eager to gain new skills, event planners who want to find unique destinations, and even companies looking for innovative team-building retreats.
