The Veggie Queen is Coming in December!
Take a little break from your "busyness" to spend some time at the Farm Stand with local chef and cooking instructor Jill Nussinow, a.k.a. "The Veggie Queen." Jill will be bringing her pressure cookers and showing you just how easy it is to cook whole squash, rind and all, inside them. She'll also be utilizing some of the delicious, nutritious, heirloom beans that we grow here at the farm, and preparing a couple of recipes that feature them. After the demo, Jill will have copies of her book available for purchase, and if you ask nicely, she just may sign one for you!
Join us and Jill from 12:00-1:30 pm on Sunday, December 6th, for what's sure to be an informative, enjoyable, and delicious experience! Please RSVP at Farm Stand if you plan to attend, so that we can plan accurately for food quantities... we can't guarantee food for drop-ins!
Save the Farm - News and Information
Since 2002, Tierra Vegetables has been leasing the land that we farm on Airport Boulevard from the Sonoma County Open Space District as part of their greenbelt plan.
At this time, the county requires us to purchase the property that we currently farm.
Tierra Vegetables is seeking to fund this purchase by 2017. The county and the farmers still need to negotiate an easement agreement that will determined the use and final price of the land.
Since arriving at this location in 2002, an array of investments and upgrades have been applied to this location including soil maintenance and biodiversity, the acquisition and restoration of the historic Big White Barn, as well as the establishment of a locally-owned, farm-based business.
Tierra Vegetables welcomes assistance from interested community members. Please support us in our effort to maintain this diverse piece of farmland.
