WEEKLY RECIPE INSPIRATION

Summer Pasta with Zucchini, Basil, and Ricotta

summer pasta

I just made this recipe with the last of this past week's zucchini, and it was super tasty! Fresh ricotta is key here, and this recipe can be remixed with any CSA veggie. I added kale to the sauté but this would be great with tomatoes, beans, eggplants, the possibilities are endless!

NEWS FROM THE FARM

corn

This week has been a hectic week again for everyone on the farm as planting, harvesting, tending crops continues with a vengeance. Weather has moderated some which gave all a relief including the plants. However, the cumulative effect of the heat is tearing its ugly head with drops in lettuce and greens production. Summer crops are on the increase such as tomatoes and eggplants which will be reflected in your shares.

We had a significant media event this week, check out the profile on our farm in the New York Times.

Also be sure to follow us on Instagram. Here's a recent video of Chef Jean-George & Chef Justin Smillie taste testing some cucumbers at the Farmer's Market.
