Born in Detroit, Michigan, Joanie Sutton happily landed on PEI in 1970 via Chicago where she met and married Jerry. Their dream was to go “back to the land” and they chose PEI, the land of Anne! Fifty years later they’re still here, growing their own food, living the country life. In that time, Joanie has written three cookbooks focusing on their homegrown and local food. She loves Prince Edward Island: the people, the natural beauty that she seeks to capture in her photography. And of course, Joanie and Jerry still grow their food and Joanie still cooks a lot!
