About the Book

Outdoor farm,
tractors toil.
Indoor farm,
zero soil.

With energetic, enchanting verse and sunshiny, colorful illustrations, discover how the food you eat is grown both outside—and inside! Join two children as they explore the inner workings of an outdoor farm and an indoor farm. You’ll see how a variety of amazing machinery like tractors and drones along with innovative farming techniques yield the wonderful food we all love to enjoy.


Raven Bookseller Reviews

"I grew up working harvest in the summer on my family’s farm in Western Kansas, and so many of the rhymes and scenes in Outdoor Farm, Indoor Farm evoked memories of gorgeous sunsets and unthreshed wheat glinting in the sun. Friends Efrem and Emma send each other letters describing their vastly different experiences growing up with an indoor farm in the city versus a rural outdoor farm. Even as an adult, I learned so much about different farming methods and sustainability practices thanks to these innovative kiddos!"

—Bookseller Wulfe
