Dinner at the Farm

One summer, when I was lamenting that I did not have my act together in time to plant my vegetable garden, Mike Kandefer (co-founder of Urban Oaks Organic Farm in New Britain, CT) responded, “Don’t worry. Let us be your garden!” Many years later, garden or not, Urban Oaks is my number one resource for delicious, locally grown, organic produce. And, no matter how much time I put into my own vegetable garden, I always make sure to leave time to volunteer at Urban Oaks to plant seeds, help out at the farmers market stand and a host of other activities that support the farm.

This spring, I added a new activity to my list of farm work – Dinner at the Farm. What a great evening we had touring the farm, learning its history from farmer Mike, preparing recipes featuring freshly picked produce from the farm, and sharing a meal and evening together.

Special thanks to Mike and Urban Oaks Organic Farm for nourishing us, the land and the community with your organic fresh produce.

Eat Clean Live Well!
