"FROM OUR FORK TO YOURS"

Pitchfork Farm's slogan. . . Eric is quite a creative fellow   ; )

Whenever I'm traveling and I tell people where I'm from, often their response is "Vermont. . . what state is that in again?" or  "Are you a farmer?"  

Neither question offends me.  . . actually, quite the opposite!  I love being from a small, tucked away state - one that usually only makes the news for positive things: our amazing local food-system, legalizing same-sex marriage, Howard Dean, Ben and Jerry's. . . 

Living in a state where our largest city's population is under 50k definitely has its drawbacks though, and I do often find myself weighing the pros and cons of bigger cities like NYC and San Francisco. 


And to the farmer question - I just smile and gush about my man's 16 acre organic vegetable farm.  Lucky girl right here.

I'm always conflicted- am I city girl or a country girl. when I left hawaii to move to SF I realized how much I love the slow pace of living off the grid. you've got it made in the shade girl. keep sharing those pretty veggies please.

MMMMM squash blossoms! I pluck them every morning to put in my sandwiches, though our squash plant isn't quite at the squash producing stage (i think i like the flowers better anyways)

Theres nothing better for your health than eating things that are in season and native to the region you live in, and nothing better than it being grown by the man you love!

So jealous of your incredible farm! And that elmer is too much. His expression in that last pic is to die for!
