Farm Crush Saturday + RECIPE: Orecchiette with Beets

This little farm girl is loving spring. I know, I know. The 5-day forecast in Wisconsin says snow. Snow twice in five days actually. But I don’t care. For now, it’s sunny and warm and I’m in heaven. I’m ignoring any talk of snow. Warm weekend hikes with my perfect pups. Seeding dates with my…

Farm Crush Friday: Lindsey Morris Carpenter

We met Lindsey last year when we were stressed out in the middle of winter with no idea where to grow our produce in the cool months of spring. We didn’t have a greenhouse and the idea of growing 80-120 flats in our house under grow lights seemed a lot more difficult than the 40…

Farm Crush Friday + Too Much Chocolate Cake

  Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day. And it’s my first married one.

Farm Crush Friday: FairShare CSA Coalition’s Julie Garrett

Where do I even begin with this one?  Julie Garrett is a truly humbling person. Julie is one of best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.  She is warm and kind, soft-spoken and generous.  She puts her whole heart into her job and her family yet she still has the time to…

Farm Crush Friday: Blackberry Farm

My Mr. Carrot would most likely not approve of this farm crush Friday recipient because I would guess that in his opinion this does not qualify as a real farm.  I think he would probably categorize it more as a hoity-doity vacation spot that poses as a farm.  He, of course, would be 100% correct. It’s…

Farm Crush Friday + RECIPE: Kale & Ricotta Toasts

I’ve decided to include a weekly feature on the blog!  Something to bring the blog back to the fact that it is affiliated with our farm because there is no doubt in my mind that throughout the week I will severely deviate from farmy things. From now on, every Friday (okay, most Fridays) I am…
