Duck, duck, duck, duck ... beet!
Clever, yes? We think so. That's one reason we are shining the spotlight on Jared today. (Other reasons include: his new baby is precious, and his significant other's donuts are fab.)
Duck Duck Beet was founded in 2014 by Jared Wilkinson, a chef of 18 years who happened to fall in love with farming. Jared became part of the Foxhollow Farm Partner Grower Program in 2015, leasing 2 acres of fertile soil, and their certified commercial kitchen, 100 yards away from his garden. Talk about low food miles!
Jared offers a spin on the classic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Instead of selling his homegrown produce, he turns his harvest into fully prepared, ready-to-eat meals that will undoubtedly create less time for you in the kitchen & at the grocery store!
All meat used is ALWAYS hormone & antibiotic free and local if possible from producers such as Foxhollow Farm, Barr Farms, Groce Family Farm, Marksbury Farm and Dream Catcher Farm.
Every Tuesday, we are lucky to enjoy Team Lunch, and the first Tuesday of the month, we enjoy Duck Duck Beet. This week, just back from paternity leave, Jared provided a beautiful meal for us: Chili made with Foxhollow's 100% Grassfed Beef, and cornbread made from an ancient variety of corn that was grown and ground in Jared's garden, less than 100 yards from where we devoured it! The salad included kale, pickled asparagus, and sunflower sprouts also from the garden.
