Two weeks ago hundreds of members converged on the farm to pick basil and make pesto. It was a lovely day for all who ventured out. The weather was perfect, the aroma of fresh basil hung in the air, lots of pesto was prepared and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.

We host festivals so you can come out to the farm and we have a chance to meet you. Hope to see you out here this season.

After the basil is picked, members stand around tables picking off the leaves. It is a way to enjoy the company of friends, family and other members.

This group had so much fun experimenting with the taste of their pesto. I was lucky to be standing at their table tasting and agreeing that yes this one is very cheesy or garlicky. Fun.
