Friendships n' Links

In our season doing demos with Working H Farms, we created a friendship that extended well beyond the market.  

For each of the seven months of our local Farmers Market, I worked with a local farm family to conduct culinary demos featuring their meats or eggs and produce from the other vendors.  Since retirement, I stop at their farm store on my way home from the weekly trips to Moms'.  They were happy to have me prepare foods out of their kitchen and sponsor our table at the market.  Bob and I have both become genuine friends with the whole family.

Quotes are from the book, "In Winter's Kitchen" by Beth Dooley.  "Farmers need to link with cooks and eaters".  "When we look for local ingredients at the farmers market, we create friendships that extend well beyond zip codes."
