Tomatoes: July to January

4 Jan

With smiles on our faces and tears in our eyes, we said good-bye to the last of our raw 2010 home-grown organic  tomatoes tonight. It adorned our salad adding a pop of red to our plates and a burst of flavor to our tongues.  How exciting to think that it grew from a plant we put in the ground in April and that it’s sisters and brothers were picked as early as July. We ate them green – both fried and in chocolate cake, red and raw in gaspacho, salsa, and salads, and cooked in pasta sauce, stewed tomatoes, chili, and more. They were gifted to friends and guests, and even traded for pasture raised eggs. Good-bye summer tomatoes!

Guests Discovering Loganberry Farm

4 Aug

Like This!

Many of our guests are visiting LoganBerry Heritage Farm for its farmer’s market from 10:00 – 2:00 on Saturdays and 4:00 – 7:00 on Tuesdays.  As you enter the Farm’s gravel drive surrounded by flowers and vegetable plants and drive past the rustic farm-house to the barn, you catch the sense that something special is happening in this slice of country heaven. Sharon the owner will greet you with her bright smile and floppy hat. She or Nadine will tempt you with delicious samples of yummy treats usually made with the farm’s bountiful harvest.  Nadine’s peach pie is to die for. You won’t leave empty-handed when you can buy sustainably raised fruits and vegetables right from the farm. Garlic, tomatoes, cucumbers, sunflowers, figs and more are in season now. Why not stop by?  Afraid you can’t do a winery and the farmer’s market too? LoganBerry Heritage Farm is right around the corner from Blackstock Winery on Adair Mill Road.
A video of the farmers market can be seen by clicking video.
