We don’t grow straight carrots

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in General | 0 comments

Every Thursday afternoon I sit down and start making our wholesale calls. We deal with roughly a dozen different establishments, including restaurants, grocery stores and coops. As I was discussing with a particular store as to why they had stopped buying our carrots, they sideswiped me.  “Are your carrots straight? We want carrots that look like California carrots.” As a grower who takes pride in growing carrots and in great...

Heirloom Tomato Pie

Heirloom Tomato Pie

Amber here, blogger at OBSESSIVISION. When one thinks of pie, sugary sweet fruit comes to mind. Well, did you know that tomato is a fruit? Even I was corrected years ago for referring to this fleshy fruit as a vegetable. “While it is botanically a fruit, it is considered a vegetable for culinary purposes, which has caused some confusion.” (source)  What better way to get this point across than to bring you a Kilpatrick Family Farm...

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Posted by on Aug 7, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

It’s August! This means nearly any vegetable I could think to eat is available to me. It’s the season I dream of most other times of the year. True, there are a few things for which the season has passed. But, even my favored peas are quickly forgotten while I’m savoring the sweetness of a cherry tomato. I’ll be happy to enjoy a creamy butternut squash in a couple months, but this month I have crisp and sweet Carmen...

Cucumber, Tomato and Freekah Salad with Mint

At market on Saturday, there was a young boy with his dad asking what you would do with the mint we had in our herb basket. He loved the smell of it, and convinced his dad to buy some. While talking to them, I quickly listed a half-dozen ways I’d enjoy using a bunch of mint, and realized I’d better take some home with me so I could get started on that list.   The mint in this salad really makes the classic summer vegetables sing...

Cream of Celery Soup

Posted by on Jul 16, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

We’re growing celery!  I’m so excited, because celery grown on a small farm and eaten fresh is so much different than what most of us are used to. If you were to taste our celery side-by-side with the grocery store variety, you might not even recognize it as the same vegetable. Those pale flavor-lacking stalks may be fine for ants on a log, but our dark green, leafy celery is full of flavor and perfect for braising or making soup....
