We’re continuously looking at new and interesting cookbooks to add to our collection. We enjoy finding recipe’s that allow us to utilize the vegetables from our gardens and the meat products from our local farm partners.
We recently tried a number of recipe’s from Mario Batali’s Farm to Table cookbook. We wanted to share a few of our favorite recipes. The Pork Shanks with Parsnips & Maple on page 216 were delicious and a great opportunity to use parsnips, onions & carrots from the Serosun Gardens. We also enjoyed the Rigatoni with Lamb Ragu on page 157. Both were hearty dishes perfect for a cold February Evening.
Here’s a link to Mario’s site if you’re interested in adding this fabulous cookbook to your collection. We’re glad we did!
The Fahey house broke ground this past December. It should be completed and ready for move in later this year. John Bieritz of JB Architecture & Builders worked closely with the Fahey family to design and build their custom home. Their home will support the design standards and sustainability guidelines of Serosun Farms. Check out our Facebook page and website for pictures as the home progresses.
Winter is a magical time at the farm. We love the peaceful serenity of the woodlands, wetlands & prairie. Happy Holidays from everyone at Serosun Farms.
We were pleased to be featured in an excellent article on Marketwatch: “Why farmland may become a more popular neighborhood amenity than a golf course”. The article, which highlights the recent popularity of agrihoods like Serosun Farms, discusses why new home buyers are choosing to move to agrihoods, where they can find farm-fresh food, land, and incredible views.
The article sites several reasons people are drawn to live in agrihoods: Open spaces, locally grown food, authentic community, reconnecting with nature.
We loved this quote from our very own John DeWald, “Developers are seeing that a farm or a garden may be a better amenity than a golf course.”
Future homeowner at Serosun Amy Fahey was also interviewed in the article. We love this imagery of her dreams for life at Serosun:
“But Fahey and others gaze upon the land and imagine its potential, savoring the sunsets as well as the early produce. She’ll probably still grow something at her new home, ‘since there’s nothing like walking out the back door to get fresh basil to throw into pasta sauce,’ Fahey said.
But any garden she creates ‘won’t ever be able to compete with the masterpiece that Jane and John are creating,’ she said of the farm that the community will grow to share.”
