Shaye Elliott is the founder of the blog “The Elliott Homestead,” which began in 2010 when her farm was but a dream. She and her husband, Stuart, are now developing their own little farm in the Pacific Northwest with their quiver of children, Georgia, Owen, William, and Juliette. Shaye spends her days writing, gardening, child and chicken wrangling, cow milking, pig wrestling, wine sipping and dreaming. She is the author of From Scratch and Welcome to the Farm.

“Shaye Elliott not only delivers a gorgeous cookbook filled with thoughtful flavor-forward recipes, but also one that deftly interweaves a very deep-rooted message of family, sustainable farming, and stewardship. She’s able to tackle all these subjects with grace and humor, leaving us with a book that’s as inspiring as it is practical.”  –Jenny McGruther, author of The Nourished Kitchen
