03 Oct Fall Produce and Supporting Local Farmers
Fall is here! That means we are very excited to enjoy some of our local fall produce, and today we wanted to talk about some our favorite fall produce, and the local farmers that we love to support!
Our Favorite Fall Produce
The fall season really brings out creativity in the kitchen with the variety of produce that comes with this season. With Thanksgiving on the way, we’ll be seeing a lot of new produce hitting the dining room table. This is the season of home made soups, long-simmered stews, braising, and baking that will bring your kitchen to life, and warm your home while the temperature is cooling down outside as well.
Some of our favorite produce we can expect to see this season is winter squash, sweet potatoes, apples (now is the perfect time to hit the apple orchard and go picking with the family!), and pumpkins. Additionally, you can also expect to see radishes, quince, pomegranates, persimmons, parsnips, pears, onions, mushrooms, leeks, greens, grapes, garlic, figs, fennel, chicory, celery, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and more during this season.
Local Farmers we love to Support
Here at our insurance agency we love supporting local businesses here in Stafford Springs. In fact, a big part of our community is made up of agricultural businesses and local farmers. However, due to a proposed zoning regulation created by town officials, these new regulations would have an effect on many of the local farms here. Foster Hill Farm, for example, would feel major limitations on their business because of these new rules. So what are the new rules and regulations for farms in our town?
