Organic Vegetables Featured in Grey Rock’s Newest Farm to Table
07 Jul, 2016
Showcasing their newest Farm to Table dish, Grey Rock in Green Lake, WI, features Olden Produce and their fresh, locally grown organic produce from Ripon, WI. These veggies travel fewer than 15 miles from farm to dish!
Olden Produce is a fourth generation family farm that is currently owned by Tracy and Richard Vinz who pride themselves in being a USDA Certified Naturally Grown farm. This means that they are 100% chemical free and still grow crops the way their grandparents did. On top of that, they are award winners, having received the 2012 Family Farm Defenders Beginning Farmer Food Sovereignty Award and the Frontera Farmer Foundation Award.
As they enter their 11th year in growing produce, they offer a flourishing plethora of different vegetables with over 75 varieties. You can get anything from Chiogga beets to fresh Thai Basil.
They strive to offer an array of options during the entire growing season and to offer the freshest, most flavorful produce possible. They achieve this goal by harvesting at the optimal times each season, proper storage techniques and a distribution site to every community they offer their produce to.
In addition to being featured this month customers can buy Olden Produce through their CSA program, farmer’s markets or roadside stands. Be sure to visit Olden at the Green Lake Farmers Market of Friday or their roadside stand off Olden Rd. in Ripon. If you are not from the Local area feel free to check their website as they also frequent farmers markets in Appleton, Oshkosh and Chicago.
You can try Olden Produce Farm’s fresh veggies in Grey Rock’s latest Farm to Table special. Enjoy “squoodles” squash noodles tossed with broccoli and snap peas and topped with pan seared shrimp in a zesty lemon and herb sauce. The special is available through July 31.
