Summer 2017 - Week #8

adam's berry farm

Featured Producers: Adam Hausmann and Jessica Sanford of Adam's Berry Farm, Charlotte, VT. Adam and Jessica, the owners of Adam's Berry Farm, have a tremendous dedication to their land, their products, their customers, and their community. The farm began in Lincoln, VT, moved to the Intervale for 11 years, and settled on a beautiful stretch of preserved farmland in East Charlotte in 2013. Using organic practices and caring for the environment are some of the guiding values behind Adam's Berry Farm, and all of the fruits grown on the farm, including strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, are certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers. As Adam and Jessica state on their website, "we like healthy food and we grow what we would want to eat." Here at the Intervale, we're thrilled to include their blueberries in our upcoming baskets, and we're sure you'll enjoy them, too!

Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Baby spinach and blueberries. Wash blueberries right before you plan to use them, and store spinach with a paper towel in the bag to absorb excess moisture. 

Omnivore Cooking Tip: While cooking with sauerkraut can be fun and interesting, keeping it raw or only very lightly warmed is the best way to gain the probiotic benefits of the fermentation process. Try adding spoonfuls to salads, rice bowls, sandwiches, and other main dishes as a cool, crunchy, and tangy side.
