Earlier this summer we had one day’s experience of reality TV stars when a camera crew followed us around the farm while we went about our business. West Central Initiative is doing this regional marketing campaign about West Central Minnesota and wanted to have a farm featured which was incolved in local food production. I think it turned out great. Check it out:
Now that we’re in August, we love how nice the fields look in the video. In June the weeds were under control, whereas, today, you’d find a big mess. We’re also impressed with how these shots done with a drone make the farm look huge. My overall impression is “Hey, that place is beautiful…I’d like to live there!….Oh, ya, I do.”
In the box:
Sweet Corn: A mix of the Trinity bi-color which is coming in and the early yellow Sugarbuns which is going out of season.
Fennel: Green stalk thing on top of the box. Check out this recipe from the Spendid Table http://www.splendidtable.org/recipes/roasted-beet-fennel-and-citrus-salad You will have to adjust a bit since there’s a single fennel bulb.
Satina Yellow Potatoes
Mixed Cherry Tomatoes
Mix of Regular Tomatoes: There’s getting to be a fair amount of ripening out there. Everybody got some red tomatoes plus some yellow romas or orange blossom for some color.
