NEWS FROM THE FARM

tomatoes

Fatigue has set in with everybody working 90 plus hours and short on a few people so we are in a way looking for that light…..Next 10 days looks fairly good with 4 out of 10 days with night time lows below 50 degrees. Soon crops will shift to more fall winter type crops such as greens, winter squashes, potatoes, ginger, etc. This week we are harvesting winter radishes and carrots for storage.

This week in the city we hosted some cacao farmers from Puerto Rico. I had visited Puerto Rico last February to survey the impact of the Hurricane on farmers there to see what we could do to help. We hosted the farmers at three events: one at the greenmarket, one at Gramercy Tavern, and the fundraiser dinner at Upland. The farmers and chocolate maker were introduced to potential customers.

Don't forget about our event coming up this weekend: 

On Sunday 9/22 join us for the the End of Summer Farmer's Dinner Party honoring Chef Suzanne Cupps as she will be leaving Untitled. Her veggie centric dishes are well balanced and combine ingredients in exquisite ways without being pretentious. Reserve a spot on Resy between 5-9pm.
