Ever want to quit your job, move to the country and start a farm stand? Susie Middleton, former editor of Fine Cooking magazine, did. Fresh from the Farm is partly the chronicle of an eat-local startup and partly a farm cookbook, liberally strewn with sunlit snapshots of chickens and garden beds in full production. And because Middleton is a flavor fanatic as well as a cook and farmer, her recipes are memorable even if you don't get to cook with still-warm eggs, or just-picked tomatoes blushing from the vine.
