The ultimate farm discovery

Dear Diary,

I am in love. I have no doubt in my mind that I am having a foodie love affair with Freshfields Farm.


Imagine walking into a grocery store/ farmers market/ roadside vegetable stand/ heaven and you have a good idea of Freshfields Farm. The store winds around like an airport or amusement park line with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs gathered around you. The hand cut meats are fresh, never frozen and amazingly inexpensive. I was astounded by all of the organic and local offerings, including the farm fresh eggs. My best tip to the new shopper: make sure to grab what you want as you go because this line of glorious produce dead ends at the checkout with no turn around lanes.

Once loaded up on all the store had to offer I ran home to create the perfect dish. I couldn’t decide between the chicken breasts or salmon filet so I went with both. Maple plank salmon and Mediterranean spice rubbed chicken were tossed on the grill while I starting chopping up fruit in the kitchen. To top off my proteins I made a salsa using pineapple, mango, nectarine, cilantro and lime. I finished off the dish with some asparagus and dug in to my amazing farm to table dinner.


Until next time,
