A bit about me:
I've spent the past five years working all sorts of different farms around New England and in Italy, learning how to grow vegetables, small fruits, meat, eggs, dairy, wine, and all sorts of good foods. There's nothing I love more than eating afresh, locally grown meal. So much so that I'm turning my passion for agriculture into a career and have begun searching for a farm of my own.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Warm Farro Salad with Roasted Butternut, Shaved Brussels Sprouts, and Pecorino Romano Cheese
Currently reading:
The Wisdom of the Radish
Currently listening to:
Van Morrison
My latest DIY project:
embroidered cloth napkins
