just a little jaunt to the farm

Like I mentioned in my Memorial Day wrap-up post, I took a quick little jaunt to the Holly Hill farm in Cohasset over the long weekend. It's a cute little place that has horses, a goat, buckets of chickens, and a bunny. I'm sure there are other living things as well .... but I'm pretty much just in love with their collection of tractors and old barns. 

I first went to the farm back in 2010 right after I graduated from grad school. My parents stocked up on plants for their garden and I hung out with the horse and the wild flowers. Last year my dad happened to pick up some San Marzano tomatoes for the garden and those are my favorite. 

All of this essentially leads to the fact that I went there solely to purchase myself one little San Marzano seedling to bring back to the North End. Here's hoping I can keep it alive on my fire escape and if I can... I'll be recreating this meal immediately.

I'm not sure why but there is something about that last picture that I really like.

Holly Hill has this little farm stand where you an buy all the healthy goodness that they produce on the farm - at least that is ready for picking. Two years ago, I swung in and procured the most amazing snap peas. This year it was a a little early for a lot of produce but they did have the freshest sourdough bread I have ever eaten. No lies. Duxbury's Little Bakery has a fan in me for life.
