Local writer seeks to make peace between farmers and foodies


Payn-Knoper asked 35 professionals to contribute to the book, people like farmers, doctors, dietitians and chefs from across North America. She even interviewed an Olympic athlete, along with several local people whose identities have been protected with fake names. The beginning of the food side of the book starts with a tour through Payn-Knoper’s regular grocery store, and she said many people will be able to recognize which store it is through her description.

“A lot of conversations with local friends happened at local stores, like The Fig Tree,” she said. “I tried to provide a lot of perspectives, because it’s not like one side is wrong and the other is right. It’s about being able to have a conversation.”
