I spent Monday of this week with Fran Busa at his beautiful farm in Lexington, MA. We wandered through the fields, grazing as we went. Eating the freshest cucumbers, beans, peppers and corn you can find. The corn came right off the stalk and we ate it raw; it was perfectly crisp and sweet. Of course, nothing beats an ear of corn that's been coated in a metric ton of melted butter, but this was amazing. The taste and the experience sang of summer. This photo of him was taken right before he said "Damn. That's good."
Fran and his family have been farming in Lexington since the 1920's. They grow just about everything New England has to offer an you have been seeing the beautiful bounty of their efforts in your shares this summer. They care for the land and for the products because as Fran says:
"We eat what we grow and we live where we grow it". It was such a joy to be seeing the products we offer you at their source and the passion Fran and his family put into growing them. Thanks for the love, Fran.
