One of my favorite projects each year is to photograph local farms for Maine Farmland Trust's annual journal. It's a collaboration between the farms, design group Might & Main, Maine Farmland Trust, and Maine-based writers and photographers. This year, I documented the way local farms are scaling up in size to increase production or reach larger markets. The story was written by talented writer Melissa Coleman, and the three featured farms are Lakeside Family Farm, Fishbowl Farm, and North Star Sheep Farm.

It's not easy to get a reservation at the Lost Kitchen. Reservations are managed by an annual lottery system: call at midnight on April 1, and you might get a table for the coming season. Chef Erin French's meals are legendary not only for their flavor and artistry, but their sense of intimacy. In today's Sunday (front page!) of the Boston Globe, a beautiful article by food writer Devra First on the legend-like story of the Lost Kitchen.
