There's a New Farm in Town!

At the Exeter market this afternoon I met friendly farmer Jean from the Winnicut River Farm in Stratham, and was immediately delighted in her offering of tulips. A quick perusal of her blog shows that she grows all kinds of interesting varieties of bulbs and perennials. Today she also had sweet bundled posies of flowering herbs for sale, and rhubarb, bok choi, and beautiful mustard greens. Be sure to visit their booth next week! Situated at the former Mill Valley property up on Winnicut Road, she, too, promotes healthy, safe farming practices. I can't wait to see what comes out of her fields this summer and fall!

We love fiddleheads. Crunchy, earthy, buttery...a cross between asparagus and artichoke in flavor, they are perfect for jazzing up an easy weeknight meal. Add further decadence by sauteeing them in browned butter and ribbons of prosciutto!
