Florida Tips

Ideas for an agricultural excursion in ‘Field to Feast’

If you crave a diversion from Mickey Mouse or a coastline, consider an agricultural excursion in the Sunshine State. You’ll find a wealth of ideas in “Field to Feast: Recipes Celebrating Florida Farmers, Chefs, and Artisans” (University Press of Florida, $28). The lavishly illustrated book by writers Pam Brandon, Katie Farmand, and Heather McPherson serves not only as a cookbook but also a go-to guide.

Profiled destinations include Going Bananas in Homestead, a nursery growing nearly 100 varieties of banana species; and Maggie’s Herb Farm outside St. Augustine, a 30-year-old pesticide-free farm that grows more than 200 varieties of culinary and medicinal herbs.
