Butternut Squash Fries


Our fabulous farmers



We are fortunate at the farm for a multitude of reasons. We are tasked with tending land that has been sacred to those that came before us for generation upon generation. We get to share our farm space with our community through educational classes and workshops, field trips, and volunteering. We share our harvest with our community through our CSA program and farm stand. We get to share our passion for growing food in a way that addresses food insecurity and environmental justice, through soil-building and considering the agroecological impacts of our farming style. As farmers, we are all here because we are passionate about making an impact on our food system at the local level and discovering ways to farm in a way that is responsible and regenerative to the land.



We are also lucky to be part of a team made of individuals with unique skills and perspectives, that help us grow together (literally). This recipe was made yesterday by Paul Maschka, our venerable Farm Educator and Mentor, in our outdoor kitchen. Please enjoy.
