green string goodness

February 16, 2011

All of the above for only $10!

We do lots of our grocery shopping these days at Green String Farm. It is one of the best sources of food in the area along with, of course, the Bounty Farm and the garden. Besides offering a selection of local and seasonal (grown right there) produce, they sell eggs, cheese, nuts, oil, vinegar, herbs, home-preserved food and beef. The beef is really good—if you are a meat-eater, give it a try. It is cheaper than whole foods, more delicious, local and humane. Read more about it here. The produce is also cheaper than going to a store where they ship it from who knows where. The above squashes and greens and broccoli and onions all cost $10. They also sell manzanita wood and rock dust for your garden that really is fabulous. The rock dust helped make our greens really healthy and free of bugs! Sometimes they have plants and trees for sale too (like right now!).

Lukas loves to go there. We buy our food at the little market store, then go visit the chickens and lambs. He likes to run around in the barn too which is currently full of squashes and beets! We can see the greens growing right in the fields. This is the same produce that goes to supply great Bay Area restaurants like Chez Panisse, and you really can taste the difference. You can take a butternut squash and an acorn squash, roast them with some shallots and puree it into soup with a little salt and pepper and it is amazing. Simple, delicious food, and it really doesn’t cost a fortune.
