Had the pleasure of visiting our own Poivrot Farci at 8 Hands Farm (website) in Cutchogue, NY last week. Poivrot is butchering, cooking, baking bread and farming at a small, sustainable farm out on the east end of Long Island's north fork. The farm recently built an amazing kitchen for Julien to perform his craft. They also have a food trailer (a food truck on steroids) that will start serving homey meals featuring their chickens, pigs, and sheep. They are also building a cheese-making facility. Local resident Tom Colicchio is a big fan of Poivrot's work. Below is a shot from his walk-in. Very much worth a trip if you are out that way. Beautiful country, filled with farms, vineyards and water.
goodeats posted a topic in Farms and Farmers' MarketsI stumbled upon this farm by way of a posting on a mom-listserve and I am really glad I did. An enthusiastic mom organized a Spring CSA for Arlington families. I ended up splitting a family share ($180) with another family, since my friend is equally enthusiastic in eating more local and less chemically-processed foods. The farm is owned by Allen and Debbie Sinclair, who are a nice, down-to-earth friendly couple who have shown up at every pickup so far (only started two weeks ago), greeting with warm smiles. They grow year-round, so this means some hydroponic gardening. At first, I was a little hesitant, because I don't know if I'd be getting hydroponic or garden growth, but after two weeks of eating their butter lettuce, asparagus and now spinach, I feel good that I made a sound, budget-conscious choice for eating for the better for my family. I have not tried their beef, but I also like that they help other local producers (i.e., Homestead milk), advertising their wares as options to purchase a la carte in addition to the weekly CSA.
