Spring 2017 - Week #13

John and Nancy The Farm Between rhubarb

Featured Farm: The Farm Between, Jeffersonville, Vermont

John and Nancy Hayden use ecological practices that maintain harmony with nature to grow a large variety of cold-hardy organic fruits and fruit nursery plants. They also have a 14-acre pollinator sanctuary on their farm, which helps to support native bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects. One of their favorite things is sharing the joys of growing your own food with others. Enjoy their rhubarb in your Vermont Vegetable baskets this week!

Eat This First: Lettuce, Chives, and Cucumber - these are the most perishable. Store lettuce with a paper towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture, and add chopped chives to everything from softened butter to scrambled eggs!
