Cold nights and some rain (finally) tells me that we are in a new season. To make this transition even clearer we are sending you home with both tomatoes and winter squash! Here’s a great rainy day recipe that puts both together into a dish that will keep you warm.
Roasted Tomatoes and Winter Squash
6 large heirloom tomatoes, cored and quartered*
2 delicata squash, seeded, cubed and peeled (optional)
3 cloves garlic
2 fronds of fresh rosemary, branch removed
6-8 large fresh basil leaves
1/2 tsp dry oregano
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
bunch of rainbow chard, de-stemmed and chopped
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and in the meantime prep tomatoes and squash. In two separate 9×13 baking dishes spread tomatoes in one and cubed squash in the other. Drizzle each with olive oil and a sprinkle of pepper. Place tomatoes on top rack and delicata on bottom.
Bake for 30 minutes. Check that delicata is tender and remove from oven. Stir tomatoes and keep baking. Let delicata cool in dish. Bake tomatoes until juices have caramelized and tomatoes have crispy edges, about another 30 minutes.
Once tomatoes have roasted remove from dish and place in a high powered blender with 3 cloves garlic, rosemary, basil, oregano, sea salt and pepper. Puree.
In a medium skillet saute chard in a little olive oil. Once wilted combine gently all 3 components: tomato puree, roasted squash cubes and sauted chard.
Labor Day Potato Harvest…Done
It’s always a gamble to ask all of you to come out and toil with us on one of the biggest days off of the year…but we have never been disappointed! About 30 of us spent 2 hours pulling about 6ooo lbs of potatoes from a half acre of our fields. To have what would of been several days of work for the crew done in a morning was great. Thanks to all of you who came out and shared your day.

Farm Raised Pork For Your Freezer
We have filled almost all of our orders for pork. If you are considering filling your freezer with some outstanding farm raised bacon (and a few other cuts) don’t delay. Never had farm raised pork? It is like nothing the grocery store has to offer. Raised on pasture and fed organic grain (in addition to gelato) our pork tastes great and you know where the animals came from and how they lived. Ask us for a info/sign-up sheet at pick-up or download one here.
