|Patti's Peeps at Sport Hill Farm|
EB White's perennial classic hearkens back to an earlier time of simple pleasures; family, friends, and farming were the mainstay of American culture.
Our favorite farm, by far, yesterday, was Patti Popp's Sport Hill Farm. Patti and her family started Sport Hill back in 2001, and it has grown into an educational center for organic farming in Easton and the surrounding towns.
Sport Hill offers a summer camp for kids and adult education programs, as well as internships for students wanting to learn more about farming.
Patti's farm boasts beautiful organic produce, plus local merchandise from like-spirited vendors.
On this Farm Tour day, she shared space with caterers that use Sport Hill's abundant fruits, vegetables and fresh eggs to demonstrate their services. There was Watermelon Mango Soup to taste... yummy! And marinated tomatoes served over fresh bread. Scrumptious!
Patti was a gracious hostess, greeting all her visitors with a wide smile. During our brief chat, we discussed the challenges of educating people on seasonal produce, as well as understanding that a few worm tracks on organic tomatoes does not mean they are ruined. (In fact, they are quite delicious!)
While I chatted, Brie was a busy bee. Click, click click! My budding photographer took every picture you see in this blog post, and she thought Patti was "simply divine." We both admired how much she has accomplished in only ten years.
Sport Hill is a model for what we can all accomplish if we put our minds and hearts into action.
