Earlier this week, Pinga and I went on a tour of Suzie's Farm. Some of the delicious produce from this organic farm had been in my Farmer's Market Box from Specialty Produce, so I knew it was good stuff. But I had no idea it was so close to my home! It's comforting to know that there's a plethora of healthy fruits, vegetables, and herbs practically in our backyard, and that the education for learning how food is grown is literally at our fingertips.
The farm is gorgeous, and our tour included visiting the chickens, and gathering up fresh veggies for a fun craft.
On our way to pick veggies, we passed by these beautiful strawberries. It turns out that they are for the Strawberry Jam, which is TODAY. If you're free from 10am to 4pm, definitely check it out. There will be strawberry picking, face painting, a kids zone, scavenger hunt, live music and more. Sounds like a great way to spend the day!
After picking our veggies, we got to make "Frankenveggies"! Here is ours:
We enjoyed a scrumptious lunch from Indulge Contemporary Catering, which included duck, lentils, pasta, stuffed veggies and squash soup. It was heavenly. In addition, we learned about the variety of summer camps held at the farm. Each week long camp has a particular focus and they all sound so incredibly interesting and fun! Kids can learn about farm animals, farm tools, art and even take cooking lessons. I would love to sign up for them all!
Thank you to Suzie's Farm for a delightful day!
