Elderflowers: Foraged & Featured at The Loft

One of the best and most rewarding parts of creating food in harmony with seasonal rhythms is anticipating the peak moments of particular seasonal foods. For some foods, like summer squash and tomatoes, their season can be delightfully long. For others, like morels or ramps, the moment is glorious but brief. However long the farm, [...]

Celebrating Strawberry Season!

Chief amongst the reasons to love early summer is the arrival of strawberry season. Is there anything better than the vibrant ruby red and melt-in-your-mouth flavor of a freshly-picked strawberry?

Five Fantastic Frozen Yogurt Sandwiches

Ice Cream Sandwiches, like Mac & Cheese and PB & J, are one of those foods that we never seem to outgrow. When summer rolls around, we long for the creamy, frosty, just-sweet-enough companionship of a frozen treat like ice cream. While a scoop (or two or three) alone in a bowl does just fine, [...]

When Summer Comes to Our Farm

This early summer season has meant much activity here at our farm and restaurant – and, sadly, less activity here on our blog! But to everything there is a season, and Summer brings a fullness to our farm that we welcome with open arms. Our sun-warmed pastures are growing lush with fragrant grasses and herbs [...]
