Kale with Mustard Roasted Carrots & Shittakes

For the past three weeks I feel like my diet has essentially consisted of five ingredients– tomatoes, cheese, sweet corn, melons and simple carbohydrates. Occasionally I throw in some butter, an egg, a cucumber, an apple, some hummus, but generally I just repeat the same five or six delicious flavors in slightly different ways. Tomato…

Butter Balsamic Roast Carrots with Carrot Top Chimichurri

The best part of vegetable farming for me (outside of the abundant sunshine, happy customers, and super rewarding work) is definitely having unlimited access to all the vegetables I want, whenever I want, and not having to visit the grocery store for several weeks (or sometimes even a couple months) in the summer. I particularly…

Soba Noodle Bowl with Pork Meatballs

The last thing we did before going into a self-made isolation/quarantine was visit our friend Beth to help take the cover off the hoophouse she’d been using for a pack shed for the past three years. My Carrot, Beth and her husband unstrapped and cut the ratchet straps, took off the end-wall cover, slid off…

The Blur of October + RECIPE: Beet & Carrot Slaw with Currants

In the last 31 days, I have traveled to Door County, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and a little cabin off Lake Arbutus outside Black River Falls.

How I, a farmer, a young business owner,  and a woman obviously in love with home, dedicated to spending my life making this little part of the world better is always on the move. Always adventuring to new places, snapping photos, and falling…

The Last Last Box + RECIPE: Pork Carnitas with Roasted Vegetables

I know I told you we said goodbye to our CSA members two weeks ago. But then we had this “problem.” After the CSA ended on October 18th, our basement storage was still packed full of onions and potatoes (I’m talking hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pounds of fully cured storage beauties) and our…

MOSES Organic Farming Conference + Meal Plan + RECIPE: Tater Tot Shepherd’s Pie

3000+ farmers, academics and friends. 450 minutes of workshops attended. Three new farming books purchased (including The Local Economy Solution, Rebuilding the Foodshed and Cold Antler Farm). (Somehow only) four beers. Two keynote speakers who were both storytellers, and both encouraging us to share our story of organic farming (!!!!!!). One adorable man named Eugene…

April Things + Huckleberry’s Barley Porridge

Rainy days. Followed by perfect sunny 70 degree days. Followed by bitterly cold and windy days. First barefoot moments in the field. First dates with our first ever CSA worker shares! First bike rides of spring. So much farm productivity. So many farm conversations. An almost full CSA! Beautifully straight rows of just seeded peas…
