Lindencroft Farm Dinner is ON – rain or shine

There’s an 80% chance of rain today, and a 100% chance we are having the dinner.  The event is on our covered decks, so you will stay dry, but you might want to wear a sweater or jacket.  Since you might have to hike a bit from parking to the house, an umbrella would be a good idea as well.
The food will be amazing.  Tours will happen if the weather permits.
And be super careful on those wet roads – they will be very slick.
See you this afternoon!

Smaller CSA Boxes Next Week

The response to our upcoming farm dinner has been pretty overwhelming. We thought we would have about 40 people, and it’s looking more like 70+. Since all of the veggies for the dinner are coming from the farm, that means we will have less to put in the boxes next week. We appreciate your understanding.

We didn’t have time to put in those pepper flakes this week, they take a while to grind, but we will try to include them next week.

New Fire Pit for Farm Dinners

We’ve recently finished building a double chamber fire pit that we plan to use for many of our Farm Dinners.  We were inspired to build this by attending the MALT Pozzi Ranch dinner earlier in the summer where Chef Sean Baker used an in-ground fire pit to cook whole lamb.  It was wonderful.  We are using brick because of our sandy soil, but the pit can be partially filled with soil if the chef is looking to gain some of the character that soil brings.

We found further inspiration from Rick Bayless, who has put out a couple of really nice videos on cooking traditional Mexican cuisine in the ground.

Here we see Jake preparing to cook a whole Hedal.  I’m not sure how good that hat is going to taste….
