The Farm grows many different types of fruits and vegetables that frequently change. So far I have tried many new things like kohlrabi, garlic scapes, okra, and mizuna. It’s amazing to be able to try new and different vegetables, but also to see how they grow. How food grows and what it looks like on the plant is something I never think about when I’m eating. It is also incredible how delicious everything is here. Everything tastes completely different from conventional, store bought produce. The depth of flavor in every vegetable is profound. The most memorable food experience I have had at The Farm this far was when I took a bite of local, organic, fresh sweet corn. I was handed an ear of corn with the husk peeled back; the husk acted as my handle for the corn. I bit right into the raw corn and he kernels were so plump that flavor just exploded in my mouth. Not only was it by far the sweetest and most delicious corn I had ever had, but it was the most delicious raw vegetable I have ever eaten . It was so sweet that it tasted like candy. I was so amazed by how different it tasted from any corn I have had in the past that I will never forget that moment and experience.
