Heat wave at the beginning of June?? Well, the strawberries should like it. Stay cool.

Lima_eggsSummer farm tours begin. Every summer the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance, a non-profit working to to foster and expand a local, sustainable food supply in Bucks County, hosts a series of farm tours every month through September. They are a lot of fun. You get to go to a local farm, learn about what they do and eat some really good food. The evening begins with a potluck and the farm tour follows. The series begins this Wednesday, June 5 at Lima Family Farms in Hillsborough, NJ. Kathy and John Lima raise grass-fed beef, chickens, pasture-raised pork, and have eggs and vegetables in season. The potluck begins at 6 pm and the tour at 7 pm. Bring your own utensils and plates, and seating. For more information, see the Food Events Calendar or go to the Foodshed’s website. Upcoming tours will be at Flint Hill Farm (Saturday, July 13), Villa Milagro Vineyards (Wednesday, August 7) and Roots to River Farm (Wednesday, September 4).
