Happy May! Celebrating the joys of spring and the flowering of Mother Earth!

On the Farm:
The farm stand is always open every day. It’s an honor stand so you just put your money in the slot. Chickens are producing so many delicious all organic, non-GMO eggs-we have an abundance of eggs. We are transitioning from cool weather crops to our summer vegetables. Soon we will have loads of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, and much more. Currently we have lots of greens: kale, chard, and herbs-arugula, sage, oregano, thyme, rosemary and much more. We don’t put them out because business is slow. If you’d like greens and herbs, just call us and let us know and we will prepare them for you. (805-481-9205)
Take Huasna Rd. and follow the signs: Organic Farm Stand.
Thank you so much Chef Jessie Rivas of The Pairing Knife for this delicious recipe. And thanks to our happy hens for such delicious organic eggs!

About Gentle Hatha: This yoga class takes the push out of your day, using slow movement and breathing to gently energize muscles and joints.
