Fried Zucchini

Fried Zucchini

Like Fried Pickles... but different!

Slice each Zucchini in 1/4 in slices and oil a pan. Dip each side of zucchini in the oil and line up.

Sprinkle some salt, garlic powder, parsley and paprika, then back in your broiler or overn at the highest temperature until they're slightly crispy but still soft.

Serve! It's absolutely delicious and would be great with a bit of ranch or other dipping sauce!

Not your average farm

We are a human-powered, no-till, farm that grows and harvests from real soil 52 weeks a year.

Using techniques developed over 12 years of farming, we strive to grow and harvest the most nutrient-dense produce possible.

We never tire of continually growing, learning, trialing different methods, and creating custom systems of non-conventional sustainable farming that continue to amaze us season after season with ever increasing yields, density, color, and flavor.

Our Philosophy

Let's leave the earth a better place than the way we found it.

We believe our body is our temple, and that what we put in it matters! It starts with food, which starts with the soil that the food is grown in.

Our ultimate goal is to feed our family the most delicious and nourishing produce we possibly can and whatever is left over to share with as many families as possible.

It all matters, the people who tend the earth, the soil itself, the seed, the plants, and finally, the families for whom's table we provide.
