Farm Fresh Fixin's for the 4th and After
Visit your local farms and farmers’ markets for farm fresh food for your holiday or family gatherings. In-season vegetables include lettuce, summer squash, beets, spinach, broccoli, Swiss chard, onions and more. Although some of the strawberry picking is winding down, raspberries and blueberries will be ready for picking soon. In addition, you can feature pasture-raised meat and poultry including hamburger, steaks and chicken for your backyard barbeque. To top it off, farm breweries, wineries and distilleries now offer an amazing assortment of beverages that can be consumed as is or combined in a variety of recipes, drinks or desserts. For a final sweet treat, how about a big scoop of ice cream made from farm fresh milk? Now, that’s one happy ending on a hot summer's day!
