In my town there's a farm that has been in operation since the 1700's. A beautiful piece of land that now produces some of the finest vegetables in season. The farm is pesticide free, which is a plus now to many people. As my first job as a youth I helped deliver milk. I would work with the milkman on a Divco milk truck delivering dairy products to homes. The dairy was located in Newington, which had several dairy farms and Eddy Farm was one of them. I am glad that the town as well as the grand daughter of Roger Eddy has protected this part of history.
You can find them on Facebook, or if you live close you might want to stop by. I'm here almost everyday. Corn and tomatoes are my favorites.
Try these sliced with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and crushed red pepper.
Brk Trt,nice post.ReplyDelete
And those tomatoes, they're beauties!! I love my tomatoes made as capizzi salad. Slices of real fresh tomatoes w/fresh mozzeralla & red onion sliced very thin. I put basalmic vinergret, but your favorite dressing of any types works well. I've even had your method, just a drizzle of E.V.O.O & added fresh basil.
AHH, the tastes of summer..........Phil
Phil my wife loves them with basil also.
You can't beat local fresh.
DFG's got it nailed. Beautiful place.ReplyDelete
Mark is sure is, and in many ways.
Nothing like fresh fruit and veggies from a local farm...the way it was meant to be.ReplyDelete
We have to take advantage of the fresh stuff while we can.
This post really got my attention, because I am a veggie consumer. Our local produce has some fantastic vegetables daily, but sorry to say they are not pesticide free; anything or place that reflects the past interest me. Thanks for sharing
I to enjoy history. Time when things and life was a bit slower and simpler.
Yumm! Our garden was a huge flop this year...nothing grew except a few measly tomatoes.ReplyDelete
For a few years we tried growing a few vegetables, they did not fare well.
