Our group of 32 CSA members drove up to Goshen, NY and got the grand tour of La Baraja Farm and a preview of our upcoming season! Our future bags of CSA veggies are off to a good start. We tasted some Mexican herbs Pedro specializes in growing like Papalo and Quelites (wild spinach).
He also showed us a variety of tomatillos plants (red, green and purple). Pedro pointed out at sprouting eggplants, squash, tomatoes, cabbage, kale and onions. After walking through the muddy crops(the kids loved this part!), Pedro and Maritza invited us for incredibly delicious home-made tamales, enchiladas, rice & a BBQ! Thanks to the extended La Baraja Farm family for a great experience! Here are a few photos, see more on facebook and on Sharlene’s blog.
