Funky First Friday Farmers Market at BADSEED - A MUST ON FRIDAYS IN THE CROSSROADS

Howdy There Farm-Fresh Junkies,

Oh my dear lord! I am stuffed. Dan and I just gorged ourselves with spinach and blue cheese risotto simmered to creamy perfection in a rich duck stock. The spinach came from our field, still crisp and delightful despite the cold temperatures...the blue cheese was (of course) from Goatsbeard Farm - only the most righteous local goat dairy around.....and the stock came from a wild mallard duck that my gracious friend, Craig, hunted for me as a Christmas gift. What a meal. It feels soooo satisfying to stay out of the supermarket and continue to eat local/home-grown delights even in the midst of Winter!!!

As for my oh so hungry readers, YOU can do the same thanks to our "die-hard" gang of growers at the BADSEED
