James Farmer is a Southern author, gardener, floral and interior designer, cook and garden-to-table lifestyle expert. He is a young, fresh voice for his generation on how to incorporate elegant seasonal garden living into one’s life either on a grand scale or modest budget. Farmer is Editor-At-Large for Southern Living Magazine and has appeared on NBC’s Today. Farmer is the author of the Wall Street Journal best selling garden book, A Time To Plant (2011) Sip & Savor (2012), Porch Living (2012), Wreaths For All Seasons (2012), and A Time to Cook (2013) published by Gibbs-Smith Publishers. All of Farmer’s books are inspired by his life growing up on a farm where farm-to-table was a lifestyle not just a popular notion.
Hailing from the pecan and peach laden fields of Middle Georgia, James was taught as a young boy how to pull vegetables, herbs and flowers from the family farm and kitchen garden to provide much of the food, decor and flavor of his family’s everyday life. He learned how to be a “hyper-seasonal” cook at the side of his grandmother whose Southern heirloom recipes he revitalized for contemporary tastes.
