I love Siena Farms, where I get my CSA. The food is stunning, vibrant, flavorful, and gorgeous every single week. Not a single week goes by that we aren't floored with freshness and vegetables that look better than anything we've ever seen at a store. Getting our CSA box is a bit of a thrill every week. We eat our lunch at Sofra, pick up our box in the wine store next door, and then we open it up before we even get in the car, unable to wait until we get home before peeking at all the fantastic colors and dreaming about what's for dinner. It's like your birthday and you can't wait to open the presents. a tasty tasty birthday.
This week the farm sent out an email with a special treat—a podcast that Corby Kummer of the Atlantic did with Chris Kurth, of Siena Farms. I visited the farm and walked around the fields, and I can tell you that it's a lovely place and it makes you hungry to see the wonderful rows of happy-looking plants. As Farmer Chris points out in the little video, the plants want to grow and if you keep them healthy, they will grow without much intervention. What a nice way to think of farming and food—that if you take care of the soil and the plants, the plants want to grow and prosper. And that's the making for incredible food
Take a look.
