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).

Farm Crush Friday: Sacred Blossom Farm + a GIVEAWAY!

It’s been a long time since I rattled on about one of my farm crushes (14 months to be exact). I guess it takes a big business and an even bigger crush to pull me back into my rotation of sharing the farm relationships that most impress and captivate me. Tony DiMaggio of Sacred Blossom…

CSA Member Good-Byes + RECIPE: BBQ Butternut Squash & Pulled Pork Pizza

We said goodbye to our CSA members last Wednesday. After 20 weeks together, it’s always bittersweet when we bring things to a close.

Planting Season + RECIPES: Ramps Two Ways

It’s absolutely blissful, filled with muddy feet, muddier hands, sun-kissed faces and so many birds chirping. I think I might be going delirious from all…

Springtime + RECIPE: Balsamic Strawberries & Cream Sweet Rolls

This spring you guys. This spring is weird. But then again, I’m pretty sure I say that every year. I just want winter to quickly and efficiently turn a corner into green grass and sunshine and mild perfect, Birkenstock-wearing weather. And it never does. It’s Wisconsin. It warms and then it cools and then it’s…

Humble Beginnings + RECIPE: Life Cereal Cookies

On Saturday morning we experienced our first death in the greenhouse. Every year, despite out steadily rising confidence, we fail miserably at something. We trust our gut instincts only to discover they were wrong, or we simply forget to trust our gut altogether because we were just too busy to pay attention to it. We miscommunicate…
