From Farm-To-Fork: Win Little Pickle Press Book Pack


Patrick O’Shanahan, like many kids these days, knows where his family’s groceries come from each week – the local supermarket. But then his whole world changes as a cow, chickens, and even trees show up in his kitchen on a Saturday morning.

The Cow in Patrick O’Shanahan’s Kitchen, by Diana Prichard, tells the tale of where our food really comes from. This newly released children’s book spurs food conversations including:

  • Where food comes from and the farm-to-table concept
  • Diversity in American agriculture and appreciation for farmers
  • Planning family meals around seasonal produce at the farmer’s market

Diana Prichard is a hog farmer and author who writes at the intersection of farm, fork, and family life. She can be found at her blog, RighteousBacon.

    It’s important because kids nowadays eat too many processed/junk foods and have NO clue what REAL food is unless the parent exposes them to that..I feel they need to know how to eat proper foods so that they can be healthy and learn how to eat properly into adulthood! thanks for the chance to win! Happy Holidays!
