Ryan, Sarah and crew can throw a killer party. Tomato tasting! Three-legged race! Tomato Trot 5K! Music! Food! Hay rides! Pick-your-own! Tractors to climb on! Food!
We arrived around 1:00pm with Zack, the Jamaica Plain CSA coordinator, who had yet to visit the farm. We left around 4:30pm, hoping to stay longer and help out next year. The thing with Tomato Festival is that there is so much to see and do that its nearly impossible to fit everything in. We had a few priorities, of course: Fire roasted corn, tomato tasting, and seeing everyone from around the farm. We succeeded, had a great time and can’t wait for next year. Laura will probably add more later, but here is a photo journal of our time at the fest.
It was really fun, the weather was great and the company excellent. It was great to finally get to meet the founders of Boston Localvores, Kristy and Darry. We need to do something together soon! Zack got to see the farm, and Laura and I got to entertain ourselves with food. What could be better?
For dinner that night, we went to Prana Cafe in Newton Corner. Another raw vegan restaurant that features local produce. When Laura ran the Newton distribution site, she was able to meet the chef and chat about Red Fire Farm Veggies. We had to go and try their food, and we were not disappointed! Two thumbs up from the ladies, and we will be returning.
