|Katy and John|
|Lower field that is growing all manner of good vegetables.|
Katy and John have a vision to grow the best possible vegetables using organic and biodynamic principals, seeing the farm as a living entity. Everything that grows on their farm is connected with one another. The hay they grow feeds the animals they raise which produces the manure they need to provide healthy soil for the fruits and vegetables they grow. There is a tangible cycle of life happening on their land along with a distinctive sense of peace. This is a very special place where time seems to slow down and the love and passion that goes into all that Katy and John do is palpable. They have dreams that goes beyond producing food: creating a legacy, inspiring children to see farming as a viable career and connecting people to the land, the food and to each other.

Many people think that making a good salad dressing is complicated so they spend loads of money on store bought dressings. Those dressings are never great and the ingredients are less than inspiring. This one is so simple and yet so, so good. It is a wonderful accompaniment to fresh greens from the farm.
3 parts good Extra Virgin Olive oil (this is the time to use the good fruity one)
1 part vinegar (balsamic, lemon juice, red or white wine)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Assemble all ingredients in a jar and shake. I know this seems stupidly simple but you wouldn't believe the amount of people who ask me what kind of dressing is on my salads. This is it. If you want to make it a bit more fancy, add some Dijon mustard or fresh herbs such as dill or tarragon. Even a sprinkling of Herbes de Provence are lovely. I guarantee this will taste better than anything you buy out of a bottle.
