Ian Knauer is a regular contributor to TakePart. More than a decade ago Ian planted fruit trees at his family’s centuries-old farm near Knauertown, Pennsylvania. Since then, he has traveled the world for Gourmet magazine, written for too many other magazines to list, cohosted three food television shows, and written a cookbook. These days, he brings all that experience back to the farm, where each meal is grown, raised, hunted, and cooked. The result is a uniquely American kitchen—all from scratch.
