            'I used to be a commercial fisherman, chasing your dinner on the high seas for a living, but now I farm twenty acres of saltwater, growing a mix of sea greens and shellfish.' In Eat Like a Fish Bren Smith - a former commercial fisherman turned restorative ocean farmer - shares a ...bold new vision for the future of food: seaweed. Part memoir, part manifesto, through tales that span from his childhood in Newfoundland to his years on the high seas aboard commercial fishing trawlers, from pioneering new forms of ocean farming to surfing the frontiers of the food movement, Smith introduces the world of sea-based agriculture and advocates getting ocean vegetables onto our plates. There are thousands of edible varieties in the sea! Here he shows how we can transform our food system while enjoying delicious, nutritious, locally grown produce, and how restorative ocean farming has the potential to create millions of new jobs and protect our planet in the face of climate change, rising populations, and finite food resources. Also included are recipes from acclaimed chefs Brooks Headley and David Santos. Written with the humour and swagger of a fisherman telling a late-night tale, this is a monumental work of deeply personal food policy that will profoundly change the way we think about what we eat.

            On Eating Meat: The Truth About its Production and the Ethics of Eating it

            'Compelling, illuminating and often confronting, On Eating Meat is a brilliant blend of a gastronome's passion with forensic research into the sources of the meat we eat. Matthew Evans brings his unflinching honesty - and a farmer's hands-on experience - to the question of how to... be an ethical carnivore.' Hugh Mackay How can 160,000 deaths in one day constitute a 'medium-sized operation'? Think beef is killing the world? What about asparagus farms? Or golf? Eat dairy? You'd better eat veal, too. Going vegan might be all the rage, but the fact is the world has an ever-growing, insatiable appetite for meat - especially cheap meat. Former food critic and chef, now farmer and restaurateur Matthew Evans grapples with the thorny issues around the ways we produce and consume animals. From feedlots and abattoirs, to organic farms and animal welfare agencies, he has an intimate, expert understanding of the farming practices that take place in our name. Evans calls for less radicalisation, greater understanding, and for ethical omnivores to stand up for the welfare of animals and farmers alike. Sure to spark intense debate, On Eating Meat is an urgent read for all vegans, vegetarians and carnivores.

            A vital account of how sustainable farming can address urgent issues such as climate change and water scarcity, health and nutrition, land stewardship, renewables vs. the coal industry, as well as meaningful and fulfilling rural employment. And a call to arms. You know who is min...ding the farm - our consumption and behaviours affect how soil is managed and what it produces. We all are. The big-picture challenges created by mass-produced agriculture are discussed, the devastation of the drought and other climate variables are unpacked, the new crops introduced and the impacts on biodiversity are unravelled. And, Patrice poses solutions and alternatives to some of the most confronting issues challenging those working on the land, and eating off it. She believes we can, and already do, produce enough good food for all populations to be well-nourished. We just need to manage it better.Patrice has invested heavily in sustainable and organic methods on her farm and travelled the world exploring best practice. Here she provides a window into the pleasures of inhabiting the land, and promotes an alternative way of thinking about value in life, no matter where you live. Elmswood Farm is quintessential Hunter Valley, but Patrice uses it as the springboard to discuss national concerns with global ramifications.
