Farm of the Week

At Farm To Fork we have been savoring the bounty from La Milpa Organica Farm a tour last two Pop-Ups.  La Milpa for me a is a flashback to my college days in Santa Barbara when all my friends were working at the Isla Vista Food Co-Op, participating in the campus community garden program, and we would get together under the stars and recruit a local musician to serenade us through he night.  My first experience with La Milpa was at one of their 3rd Saturday Potlucks.  I felt like I was in another time and place surrounded by the organic farm, eating pizzas form a clay oven and listening to a soulful folk singer.  We recommend checking out their events, the next being Saturday September 18th. There is no shortage of good food, conversation and smiles at La Milpa.  At the next Farm To Fork Pop-Up look for La Milpa greens in the side salad, cucumber in the water, young zucchini in the Going Green Scramble, basil in the pesto and their luscious herbs in the table bouquets.  La Milpa is an amazing example of how food can bring the community together.  Their environmental practices are beyond organic. They take time, love and care with each item they plant and harvest. We guarantee you can taste the difference.   You can find La Mipla at these local farmers markets.
