Our Farmers grow the produce they bring

Bryan Wolford 2015 (800x450).jpg

You can see Brian’s rows of corn in the back of the picture that was taken when we inspected his farm. We inspect all our farms to make sure that our farmers are growing what they bring. We count the rows of corn then estimate how much they will produce. Then watch at market how much corn he brings. Our market council does a lot of work to make sure we maintain a “growers only” market.

Craig Harkrider from Stoney Hedgerow Farm explains about Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes.jpg

Garlic scapes are the flowering stems of hardneck garlic, which if left uncut will eventually turn into a cluster of small bulbils at the top of the stem. In our region, the scapes emerge from the leaf whorl in early-mid June. The young scapes are a delicious, short-season treat, prized in Asian and European cuisine, and offer a mild garlic flavor useful in many recipes. Favorite dishes include garlic pesto, stir fries, sautes, soups, and salads. Garlic scapes may be frozen for later use, either raw or in a processed form.
