Lovin’ the local farms!

by Tanya on February 27, 2012

Field of tomatoes.

Since moving here to East Bradenton, we have really been enjoying the many local farms and ranches. One we’ve been to several times is Hunsader Farm which is only 10 minutes away from our home. We’ve gone to pick strawberries and tomatoes a few times now, once the kids and I picked 22 pounds of strawberries for our housewarming party. We freeze them for smoothies, eat them whole, make sweet treats. I took great pleasure making home-made tomato sauce twice now, blanching, peeling, squooshing, cooking… So many dinners to eat up the fresh sauce. Love it!

Thought I’d share some of the love!

Please share the LOVE:-)!

Oh, how I love living in a place with so many local u-pick and roadside options!!! Nothing beats fresh, even if it’s not certified organic. YUM!

Have you tried Hydro-Taste you pick farm yet? they are very close to you. The entire farm is planted in the hydro-stacker hydroponics system. Very cool.
