Diggers+Mirth+Collective+Farm+Harvest+in+the+Intervale.jpg

Meet the Diggers! Diggers’ Mirth Collective Farm is one of the certified organic farms located in Burlington’s Intervale… just down the road from the Intervale Food Hub and the Intervale Center! The Diggers have a unique cooperative model with a focus on local food access. You can find their Veggie Truck driving around the Old North End on warm summer evenings! In the picture above, the crew is harvesting mesclun mix on a late summer day. This week’s mesculn delivery will be our last delivery of a veggie harvested from an outdoor field until spring. We’ll deliver greens that are grown in hoop houses and greenhouses during our colder seasons.

Cooking & Storage Tips

Eat this first: Mesclun (for members with the Variety Package) This flavorful green will make a delicious quick salad! Try adding some roasted squash to your salad!

And, napa cabbage and mushrooms.

Napa cabbage has a nice tender texture that makes it much easier to use and quicker to cook down that a standard green cabbage.

Mushrooms will have the best flavor and texture if you use them up quickly!
