We made it.

January went out like a lamb with steady temps, not much rain or snow, and some beautiful sunny days. This easy weather has got us jumping ahead mentally to spring; to warmer temps, green seedlings, sightings of budding pussy willow, witch hazel and forsythia. We have been swooning over the gorgeous collection of seed packs from Hudson Valley Seed Co.,  each pack with a whimsical depiction of what may grow from each tiny seed. Our greenhouses are waking up, too, with pots, soil and seeds being readied for planting. The mid-winter ritual of ordering rosé for it's April arrival on the shelves has once again commenced, filling our heads with dreams of summer picnics.  Spring is a mere 50 days away-which we have begun to notice will be here in an instant. There's still February and March to get through, but with all of the inspiring products, green plants, seasonal citrus & great produce out on the farm, we will continue to grow, savor daydream our way right through the harshest parts of winter. Join us, wont you?

Happy Retirement, Ben & Jerry!

Image

Most New Englanders head South when they retire. Not these guys. Ben and Jerry are heading to Vermont, ready to roam in the Green Mountains. While we are sad to see them go, we are happy to know that they are headed to wide open spaces with all the green pasture they could ever ask for. They’re northbound on Sunday. Give ‘em a wave and a thanks when you drive by! Here are a few of our favorite photos of them over the years...

Join us on Saturday, February 16th at 11 am in the Hayloft for a lesson in JIN SHIN JYUTSU with Sheri Perelman.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow. Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually

News from our Kitchen

Meet the Chef!- Cassius Walcott, lead prep chef

Cassius "Cass" Walcott has been working in the farm kitchen since 2009. After just two years doing prep, Cass' hard work, attention to detail and flavorful dishes caught our interest and taste buds. He has since been responsible for churning out all of those beautiful, farm-to-table salads you see in the kitchen counter deli case. In addition to making  all of our favorite things such as lobster salad, jerked chicken & fried arancini balls, Cass makes many of the hearty soups we offer. If that weren't enough, Cass also cooks off all of the eggs for our famous breakfast sandwiches which can number in the hundreds in the summer months. "My favorite thing is arriving in the morning and setting up the case, arranging all of the colorful food and making everything look very appealing to the customer."

"I like my food to be colorful and healthy,

but most importantly, tasty"

During the slower months, Cass likes to experiment with new recipes. The one pictured here, which will be available tomorrow morning in the case is a roasted delicata squash and sweet potato salad tossed with crunchy pumpkin seeds, tart dried cranberries, arugula and lemony rosemary ginger vinaigrette. Next time you're on the farm, be sure to say hi to Cass

The Rancho Gordo Story
You Can Blame it All on the Dutch
"I was shopping one August for tomatoes and, despite Napa being one of the world's most magnificent agricultural regions, all the tomatoes were from a hothouse in Holland! Worse, they were hard and pale pink instead of the ripe tomatoes I was craving. I started to grow my own tomatoes and this eventually led to beans.

 

My first harvested heirloom bean was Rio Zape. They were pretty and easy to grow but I had no idea what to expect when I cooked them.  Hints of chocolate and coffee mixed with an earthy texture made my head spin. I was blown away by Rio Zape and the other heirloom beans I was growing, but also really confused why they were such a big secret. I took the beans to the farmers market, organizing things on my kitchen table. Soon there was a warehouse, followed by more markets and mail order. It seems we had struck a nerve. People agreed that heirloom beans were worth saving, growing and cooking. Currently our warehouse, a retail shop and offices are in Napa, California and a stop here is part of many tours of the wine country."

 

Steve's Soapbox
Please indulge me one last thought. As you cook these heirloom beans and other grains and ingredients, keep in mind that we have a common New World culture with Mexico and the rest of the Americas. What you are doing isn’t exotic and esoteric. It’s continuing traditions that are well-established for a reason.  New World food is exciting, tasty, healthy, romantic, and possibly, easier on the earth.

I hope you enjoy cooking with these Rancho Gordo products as much as I enjoy growing and presenting them.

 

-Steve Sando
