ARTfarm Saturday 10am-12 noon! We have Derby Mint and Pineapples!

Chef Jamie Hughson stopped by this week to pick up ingredients for a Bon Bagay sunset sail! If you haven't been out with Captain Jerry for this farm-to-galley experience, jump on it soon! They'll be sailing away for a few months this summer.

The ARTfarmers enjoyed a local dinner sunset sail with the Bon Bagay team recently. The boat chefs have been visiting us regularly all season long for their farm-to-galley menus, and we had to go and see what they were doing with all our produce. It was so relaxing to be out on the water in the starlight and we are still marveling at the various, off-the-charts tasty, creative courses Chef Jamey Hughson put together. If you haven’t been out west to enjoy this secret gem of an experience, give them a call (340-277-7660) or make reservations on their website. They are headed down island in late June for a few months to work on the boat, so hurry and get a reservation in now! The boat seats six but singles and couples are welcome to mix from different parties. Treat yourself!!

Today we have MINT for your Kentucky Derby mint juleps, and a few ARTfarm pineapples today for the early birds! Also on today’s list: Sweet salad mix, teen spicy salad mix, arugula, microgreens, macrogreens, a few cucumbers, a few tomatoes, yard long red beans, onions, scallions, beets, carrots, lots of radishes, dandelion greens, bagged kale, mini bell peppers, Serano peppers, Italian basil, sage, rosemary, mint, zinnia flowers, and amazing local fruit flavors of vegan coconut ice cream (from our partner I-Sha).

Eat the whole thing! These crunchy ARTfarm radishes are sold with fresh, delicious green tops. The tops are great rinsed, chopped, and dropped into, sprinkled over, or wilted on just about any savory dish you are making! Slightly peppery (less so when cooked), and oh-so-good for you!

Book a table for tomorrow night, and find out how this cliffhanger turns out!

Savant, Dashi and Kendrick’s on the regular ARTfarm delivery route!

We love to grow fresh food for creative chefs almost as much as we love to supply our family and farmstand customers. We love it when these guys call us up asking about new crops or telling us what amazing dish they are going to make using our stuff. Or just to harass Luca and try to get him to play basketball.

Two chefs making pirate faces hold up bunches of fresh green herbs from ARTfarm at Savant Restaurant in Christiansted, St. Croix USVI.

The ‘double D’ chefs of Savant Restaurant (Dreads and Daryl) get sassy with some fresh herbs from ARTfarm. Jill and Ashley at Dashi, and Dave over at Kendrick’s also took on some ARTfarm produce Wednesday afternoon. Eat out in Christiansted this week and celebrate: the blessed ending of a lengthy campaign season, or butterfly season, or just awesome food!

It’s still early in the season, but Savant, Kendrick’s and Dashi are already on the ARTfarm Christiansted delivery route, and as the season continues and the heirloom tomatoes come in their orders will undoubtedly get heavier! Thanks for the support!!

ARTfarm Wednesday Stand: Purple Yard Long Beans & MORE

A happy face on a bed of orange sungold cherry tomatoes is made from pink zinnia flower eyes, a sweet green pepper nose, and purple long bean smile.

Purple long beans are sweet crunchy stringbeans. They're great marinated and then chopped into a salad! Chef Eric "Dreads" Nielsen from Savant Restaurant sometimes circles the veggie curry plate with a few!

Lettuce Be Happy at Saturday’s ARTfarm Stand!

A praying mantis is well camouflaged on a leaf of galangal at ARTfarm.

Can you spot the praying mantis on this galangal leaf? We found a whole bunch in the basil harvest this morning. These insects are highly beneficial and are perhaps the only insect with an articulated head.

Crazy tons of lettuce and fresh greens for Saturday’s stand coming up at ARTfarm! Start planning your fresh local Thanksgiving dinner with food grown mere fractions of miles from your home or restaurant kitchen!

We’ll have lettuce heads in festive holiday colors, frizeé endive, sweet mix, spicy mix, arugula and microgreens. Bunched cooking or juicing greens including kale, collards, chinese cabbage, baby bok choi and broccoli rabe.
