About the Author
Jonathan Cook and Suzanne LePage have been brewing beer with homegrown ingredients since 1999. That year, they toured New England brewpubs on their honeymoon. Beginning that spring, Cook worked at Wolf Pine Farm in Alfred, Maine in exchange for a large share of vegetables. Since then, he’s worked at four other farms and two farmers markets. Writing opportunities arose at that time, as well. His 12-year newspaper career resulted in more than 1,000 stories on a wide range of subjects, highlighted by two constant themes: endangered farmland and the regional brewing industry. Cook also runs the 5,000 square foot Chef’s Garden at the historic Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield, Massachusetts.
