Following up on her popular cookbook, Five Marys Ranch Raised, Mary Heffernan reveals family life on the ranch through the traditions, crafts, and meals they share together throughout the year.
I want to make everything from this cookbook!" --Tieghan Gerard, Half Baked Harvest
Arranged around 17 themed menus for favorite family events and activities, Five Marys Family Style takes the reader on a journey through the seasons and customs that drive life on the ranch. Featuring more than 75 rustic, hearty recipes, inside readers will discover the Heffernan family's Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions, menus for a cozy fireside dinner, a summer cookout, a pack-ahead picnic, or an end-of-week taco fiesta. Sprinkled throughout the book are simple, crafty DIY projects that Mary and her four daughters have fun making together, including indigo-dyed tea towels, flower-filled holiday table runners, and hand-rolled beeswax candles. Along the way, Mary shares stories of life on the ranch as well as the faithful traditions and strong connections she maintains with her extended family. Lush photography captures the expansive beauty of the ranch, the animals, including dogs, cats, and horses, and of course, Mary and her beloved husband and ranching co-partner, Brian.

About the Author
MARY HEFFERNAN and her husband, Brian, left behind the busy life they'd built in Silicon Valley to become cattle ranchers with their four young daughters—all named Mary. Together they own and operate Five Marys Farms, an 1,800-acre ranch in the mountains of Northern California where they live, work, and raise all-natural beef, pork, and lamb. Mary and Brian sell and ship directly from the farm to families all over the US. They share their meats with local customers and visitors from far and wide at their popular restaurant and bar, Five Marys Burgerhouse. Five Marys was awarded Best Farm in America by Paleo magazine and has been featured in Oprah magazine, Real Simple, Sunset, and other national publications. Mary has a fiercely loyal following on social media and hosts popular summer farm dinners and weekend retreats at the ranch. She and Brian believe in raising meat naturally and that great cooking starts with well-raised ingredients.
