As more and more people seek locally grown food, independent, family owned and operated agriculture has expanded, creating local networks for selling and buying produce, meat, and dairy products and reviving local agricultural economies throughout the United States.

InGrowing Good Things to Eat in Texas, author Pamela Walker and photographer Linda Walsh portray eleven farming and ranching families who are part of this food revival in Texas. With biographical essays and photographs, Walker and Walsh illuminate the work these food producers do, why they do it, and the difference it makes in their lives and in their communities.
