While Mr Chiots and were driving around the back roads of Main we happened upon this sign:
Now if any of you have read any of Eliot Coleman’s books, you know that this is his farm. We stopped in to see what kinds of beautiful vegetables were available and what his farm stand carts look like.
The stand was filled with his famous carrots, and all other sorts of beautiful farm fresh organic vegetables. If we hadn’t been traveling I would have purchased some beets and some cabbage and probably some leeks.
Since we had little room in our cooler, I only had room for a big bag of carrots and some arugula. The carrots were roasted with a fresh chicken from a local farm when we got home. The arugula was enjoyed on sandwiches while we were on the road. This particular sandwich was made of: cheese, arugula, a tomato brought from home, local cheese, and guacamole on homemade bread.
While we were there we met Chad who’s working at Four Season Farm and we also met John the Food Cyclist who happens to be planning to bike around the world visiting organic farms. We chatted with him for a while about his trip and all the interesting things him and his wife are doing. Head on over to his blog to read about his trip.
It’s always great to meet like-minded folks and chat with them. It’s encouraging to know that there are so many out there that have many of the same convictions we do about organic gardening and local eating. John and Chad were just a few of the many interesting like-minded folks we chatted with on vacation.
Have you ever met any interesting folks while on vacation?Miscellaneous | Comments (2)
