During the summer I was honored to participate in the Oxbow Box Project and create some recipes with the beautiful produce from Oxbow Organic Farm. Just a couple of weeks ago I visited the farm for the first time and got to be part of their Pumpkin Patch and Fall Hoe-Down. Let me tell you, if you are ever near Carnation, Washington, this is the place to be.
Oxbow Organic Farm is a 25-acre vegetable, fruit, and berry farm about 40 minutes outside of Seattle. You can find their produce at local farmers markets, independent grocery stores, and through their CSA. Besides their gorgeous produce, my favorite part about their farm is their mission to reconnect people to the land and sustainable farming methods while also educating people about healthy food and environmental stewardship. Oxbow has some fabulous educational field trip opportunities for schools and groups as well as a pumpkin patch that can’t be beat this time of year!

And a special thanks to everyone who came out a few weeks ago for the Hoe-Down and got to enjoy my kale smoothie for kids demo! (Recipe can be found here.)
