Heirloom: Notes from an Accidental Tomato Farmer by Tim Stark

Some years ago Tim Stark was living in Brooklyn, working days as a government consultant and writing unpublished short stories by night. One day he walked past a Dumpster full of discarded lumber and decided to build germination racks for heirloom tomatoes, which he could then cart back to his familys inactive farm in rural Pennsylvania. The weather and soil were so tomato-friendly that summer that he had a huge bumper crop to sell at the new farmers market at New York Citys Union Square. Fifteen years later, his completely organic Eckerton Hill Farm does hundreds of thousands of dollars of business a yearraising killer habaero chilies and fancy microgreens as welland his tomatoes grace the menus of New Yorks most demanding chefs and even the cover ofGourmetmagazine. Situated beautifully at the intersection of Michael Pollan, Ruth Reichl, and Barbara Kingsolver,Heirloomis an inspiring, elegiac, and gorgeously written memoir about rediscovering an older and still vital American way of life.
