Summer 2017 - Week #11

Rockville Market Farm

Featured Producers: Eric and Keenann Rozendaal of Rockville Market Farm, Starksboro, VT

Eric Rozendaal made the move to agriculture after being inspired by the Guatemalan farming practices he observed while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer. After returning to Vermont, he partnered with the Intervale for support as a beginning farmer, and was then able to purchase a 108 acre farm in Starksboro through the Vermont Land Trust five years later. Eric and his wife Keenann now produce certified organic vegetables, poultry, eggs, pork and lamb on the farm and supply fresh, wholesome food to their community through farmers' markets, sales of Eric's Eggs to local grocery stores, and more. Enjoy their tomatoes in the basket for this week, perfect for tons of summer recipes!

Eat This First: New potatoes, corn and tomatoes. The sugars in sweet corn break down into starch relatively quickly, so it's best to eat it as soon as you can. Try a quick summery saute with other basket items (red onion, green peppers, tomatoes), or classic corn on the cob!
