Summer 2017 - Week #9

River Berry Farm Stand Photo.jpg

Featured Producers: Jane Sorensen and David Marchant of River Berry Farm. Located on the Lamoille River in Fairfax, River Berry Farm is a family-owned certified organic vegetable and fruit farm. David Marchant and Jane Sorensen (and their children) have farmed at River Berry since 1992, growing vegetables, strawberries, raspberries, and bedding/pollinator plants. By utilizing season-extension techniques such as row covers and transplanting, Jane and David are able to produce a large variety of vegetables for much of the year. This week's basket has delicious cabbage and tomatoes from River Berry Farm, and we hope you'll enjoy them!

Recipes & Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Basil, tomatoes, and new potatoes. Try the recipe listed below for a way to use all three at once!

Storage Tip: Fresh basil is rather delicate, and the best way to make it last is to treat it like a flower. Place the stems in a glass with some water and cover the top loosely with a plastic bag, change the water often, and keep it out of the fridge or it will turn black.
