(The farmers in the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts like to joke that farms in the Boston suburbs are in the banana belt.) What does this mean for our customers? It means that , during the growing season, you get the freshest, tastiest vegetables possible (usually picked that very morning). It means getting gorgeous organically grown vegetables from Ray Mong at Applefield Farm in Stow. It means getting all-natural pasture-raised beef from Kim & the Konove family out in Brimfield. It means getting beautiful fruits and vegetables and exquisite pork that has been humanely raised by the Stillman family out in New Braintree. It means getting the best heirloom apples and peaches. It means that you can find such New England cheeses as Berkshire Blue, Westfield Farm Goat Cheeses, and Neighborly Farms. It means that the cider you get here is local and delicious (mainly from Box Hill Orchards). We have spent years, scouring the New England countryside in our free time searching out small, local farmers that take pride and care in both what they do and how they do it. We have visited most of the many farms we do business with (we still have to visit some cheese makers) learning about the farmers and their growing practices, making sure that they are ecologically responsible, and in the case of animals, that they are humane. Why local? It certainly fresher and tastier but we like the idea that it means less ├óÔé¼┼ôtruck miles├óÔé¼┬Ø to bring our food to the restaurant, and hence less pollution. We are big fans of the fast-disappearing rural environment, and feel strongly that one way to protect that environment is to support our local farmers. These are the little guys who are too small to cash in on the huge government subsidies that are doled out to giant agribusinesses. These are the guys that get up at 3:30 a.m. every morning, day in and day out, to do the milking. These are the guys that never stop working as long as there is light during the growing season. We applaud and admire them for all their hard work, and we urge you too, to search them out and support them as much as possible. Thanks for listening.
