What a treat we had last night at our first meeting for Garden Club! We toured Ben Elliott’s Salt Box Farm garden and then had him speak to us about the trials and tribulations of owning and running a small farm and catering business. Check out his website, but here is an excerpt from it:
With Saltbox Farm, Chef Ben Elliott, a professionally trained chef and–more recently–farmer, realized he had an opportunity to offer the surrounding communities unique culinary experiences that focus on local ingredients, seasonal cooking, and the preservation of culinary traditions. Through catering, cooking classes, and a CSA, Saltbox Farm serves as a resource for locally grown food and culinary education for home cooks and enthusiasts.
