Cas-Cad-Nac Alpaca Farm

During a Vermont Agritourism Conference I attended in early April (more on that soon!), one of the presenters mentioned Cas-Cad-Nac Alpaca Farm. I was looking for another place to visit and photograph on my way home and as you know I can’t resist adorable livestock. I called the farm and they were so kind to accommodate me for a […] Read more…

I’ve expressed my adoration for Linda Ly’s Garden Betty Blog before, so of course I was thrilled to be given the chance to review her first book, The CSA Cookbook.

We walked through the cozy barn and gift shop, and of course […] Read more…

Slow Flowers

After years of drooling over images of gorgeous arrangements from my favorite florists Saipua, Floret, and Studio Choo, I started to learn about a growing community (pun intended) of florists, farmers, and flower lovers who are advocating for the production and use of locally grown flowers, often called the Slow Flower movement. Like the Slow Food movement, the Slow Flower movement champions […] Read more…

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture

For years I have been wanting to visit Sleepy Hollow, New York around Halloween. When I started planning the trip I found so many other awesome things to do and see in that part of the Hudson River Valley.  I was thrilled to discover that the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture was just 5 minutes away from Sleepy Hollow, […] Read more…
