Summer 2017 - Week #14

burnt rock farm

Featured Producers: Justin Rich and Lindsay Lyman-Clarke of Burnt Rock Farm

Justin and Lindsay manage 12 acres of certified organic vegetable production and 6 acres of intensively managed cover crops on their glacially terraced soils along and above the banks of the Huntington River. Their specialities include potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, and a variety of vegetables that store well, to provide us with variety through all of Vermont's wild seasons! They know how important it is to have healthy soils as a foundation for their plants. Justin and Lindsay utilize a variety of organic soil amendments such as compost, wood ash, and rock mineral fertilizers, and cover cropping also keeps the soil of their farm healthy and productive.

Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Sweet corn and lettuce. Fire up the grill a few more times before the cooler temperatures hit--try grilling corn and peppers in this week's basket!

Steak Cooking Tips: Steaks will be either sirloin tip steak or top round (London broil). Marinade isn't necessary for the sirloin steak. We do recommend a marinade for the top round/ London broil, and suggest cutting diagonally after resting. One of our favorite end-of-summer meals for steak is a refreshing steak salad with corn and peppers. Yum!
