Oh, how we love to cook! It’s really the reason behind all this farming — the freshest of ingredients at our fingertips. But knowing how to incorporate delicate fennel bulb into your salad, make a wonderful kale caesar not to mention what to do when your zucchini plants are overproducing is part of the magic of making fresh vegetables work in your life.

Each week, Homer Hilltop Farm will share recipes incorporating the vegetables most prolific in our gardens. We will also feature recipes with ingredients beyond the garden fence from time to time, from halibut and fresh chicken stock to jams made with fresh blueberries found in the hills of Kachemak Bay.

There is nothing quite like sitting down to a meal that is 100 percent locally harvested to feel the richness of living in Alaska! We are excited to share that with you to enhance your enjoyment of our wonderful vegetables.
