Since this is our annual issue on our community’s agriculture, we thought it fitting to feature fresh, local produce. And everyone knows our farmers produce some of the best veggies (and meats) around.
For a fresh take from a local favorite, try a farm-fresh stuffed tomato from Colby’s Deli. They start with a giant tomato from Riney Farms, and stuff it with chicken salad (or tuna salad, if you prefer). Then Colby’s Deli serves it on a bed of greens with egg and cheese and your choice of salad dressing.
Like we said, in addition to the county’s fresh vegetables, our local farmers also produce outstanding quality meat. For their hash, Sassafras uses slow smoked, fresh beef short rib from Hillview Farms. They finish it with locally-sourced sauteed cabbage, carrots, onion and cherry tomatoes.
