IT'S SUMMER ON SATUR FARMS!
We're enjoying a great start to our summer growing season on Long Island. In addition to our Mesclun, Wild Arugula, Baby Spinach, we're harvesting Baby Kale, Mizuna, Frilly Red Mustard & Tat Soi. Butter Lettuce, Frisée, Lollo Rosso, Curly Kale and Tuscan Kale add to our offerings. Our washed and pillow-packed Chervil and Cilantro are in high demand.
Satur Farms continues their outreach to educational and nutrition-based community programs. Food and Finance High School from Manhattan will be visiting our farm in June. The school focuses on offering students academically-rigorous careers and technical education focused on culinary arts and finance as related to the food industries.
We became involved with BPeace, an NPO with the mission of linking small business owners in poverty/violence-stricken countries with similar businesses in the USA, giving them knowledge and inspiration to expand their businesses, employ more people, and generate more revenues. We hosted a wonderful woman from Guatemala who grows and processes baby leaf, and quickly bonded with he and hope to visit her operation in return. We've also linked some of our restaurant and food colleagues to BPeace, who have mentored visitors. You can find out more about BPeace, The Business Council for Peace at: http://www.bpeace.org/
Don't forget that we open our farm to the public once a year in conjunction with The North Fork Foodie Tour, which will be held this year on Sept 11. You can get more information at https://www.facebook.com/NorthForkFoodieTour and purchase tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2498854
