Second-generation food lover Max Watman (Chasing the White Dog: An Amateur Outlaw’s Adventures in Moonshine) shifts his obsession from homemade booze to DIY food in Harvest: Field Notes From a Far-Flun Pursuit of Real Food (W.W. Norton & Company 2014). In Hudson Valley “farm-to-table land,” he raises chickens, tries pickling and cheesemaking, takes hunting and fly-fishing trips. Since his Cold Spring backyard’s too small for a grass-fed steer, he raises one long distance, chronicling feasts and fiascos along the way. Think of Michael Pollan meets Gary Shytengart.

I spoke with Watman about the funny, sometimes grisly business of raising your own food in late February.
