Today, it happened.
From budding radishes to the tastebuds of an executive chef.
Scott Walton, to be exact.
This week, Sue Walton picked up Karla’s share, a CSA member who is traveling for a bit and passed her abundance on to her friend.
So Sue picked up last Wednesday, excited for the rare scapes and new-to-her beet greens since her son, Scott, the executive chef for Heinz Fields and the Pittsburgh Steelers would be home for the holiday weekend.
I must say, it is exciting to see our food plated up in high fashion, and enjoyed by a pioneer of the farm to table movement in Chicago for the past decade.
This is most certainly a milestone for the farm, and hopefully more of you will share your photos and videos of how you enjoy the food from our farm. Truly a joy to share this photo on this particularly dreary, cold June day.
This is a reminder to me to spend as much time in my kitchen as in the fields.
Thank you, Sue & Scott, for sharing your family connection with us.
