Celebrate Summer’s Bounty

It is important to take time to relax with family and friends to celebrate summer’s bounty.  What better way than over a delicious meal filled with ingredients from your farm or garden.

This past Wednesday I was honored to have the Epicurean Connection host a Quarter Acre Farm dinner, all the ingredients were sourced from my farm.

It was so lovely to see my produce turned into such a scrumptious dinner.  To make the evening even sweeter I was able to share a table with my parents who were visiting from Maryland.

So take the time during your busy summer to have a nice slow meal filled with local food and people you care about.
