The ARTfarmers enjoyed a local dinner sunset sail with the Bon Bagay team recently. The boat chefs have been visiting us regularly all season long for their farm-to-galley menus, and we had to go and see what they were doing with all our produce. It was so relaxing to be out on the water in the starlight and we are still marveling at the various, off-the-charts tasty, creative courses Chef Jamey Hughson put together. If you haven’t been out west to enjoy this secret gem of an experience, give them a call (340-277-7660) or make reservations on their website. They are headed down island in late June for a few months to work on the boat, so hurry and get a reservation in now! The boat seats six but singles and couples are welcome to mix from different parties. Treat yourself!!
Today we have MINT for your Kentucky Derby mint juleps, and a few ARTfarm pineapples today for the early birds! Also on today’s list: Sweet salad mix, teen spicy salad mix, arugula, microgreens, macrogreens, a few cucumbers, a few tomatoes, yard long red beans, onions, scallions, beets, carrots, lots of radishes, dandelion greens, bagged kale, mini bell peppers, Serano peppers, Italian basil, sage, rosemary, mint, zinnia flowers, and amazing local fruit flavors of vegan coconut ice cream (from our partner I-Sha).
Things are greening up on the South Shore! Come check things out!
Check out these yummy ingredients headed over to Chef Sean and his crew out at Duggan’s Reef Restaurant on the east end. We don’t know exactly what Sean’s going to do with our microgreens and figs, and he’s still creating some flavors in his mind… But you can be sure it’s going to be fresh and fantastic! Book a table for tomorrow night, and find out how this cliffhanger turns out!
We love to grow fresh food for creative chefs almost as much as we love to supply our family and farmstand customers. We love it when these guys call us up asking about new crops or telling us what amazing dish they are going to make using our stuff. Or just to harass Luca and try to get him to play basketball.
It’s still early in the season, but Savant, Kendrick’s and Dashi are already on the ARTfarm Christiansted delivery route, and as the season continues and the heirloom tomatoes come in their orders will undoubtedly get heavier! Thanks for the support!!
