I am thrilled to present my photographic series, Locally Known: A Photographic Celebration of Our Local Farms. My column, and the Locally Known idea, grew from my own artistic desire to create a visual documentary of our local farmers, their farms, and to make a connection with the Monadnock Region’s bounty of fresh local food.
My hope is that you will start a new relationship with your food, to know where it comes from and to connect with the people who provide it. I believe it strengthens our community when we have a connection with the hard-working people that provide us with fresh, natural and organic food. Then, the next time you purchase locally raised grass-fed beef or a locally-grown organic vegetable (or two!), you will know exactly where it came from and who made it – how exciting is that!
Come with me on my culinary journey through the foods and farms of the Monadnock Region – let’s make the choice to support the people who are genuinely taking care of our land and our dinner tables. Join me in celebrating the amazing food folk of the Monadnock Region!
Offering a healthy dose of bounty-full food.
I stopped by the Barrett Hill Farmstand last week, on Rt. 31 in Mason, and I was in awe by the the many delicious produce offerings in their custom-built farmstand. I was swooning over the peaches, the luscious, juicy, happy peaches. Picked that morning! Does it get better than that? In fact, it does…most everything in the farmstand is fresh-picked that morning. Needless to say, my basket was full of goodies and our tummies were full. Next up, peach jam!
