Have you ever tried a summer pesto pasta? Basil is Farmer Stacey's favorite crop to grow + harvest. Farmer Casey likes to make big batches of pesto to freeze, so they can enjoy the taste of summer throughout fall, winter + spring when basil is not around. This kit makes enough pesto for multiple meals. We recommend freezing some for future use :)
Your pesto kit will include
2 BIG bunches of basil, certified organic
1 jumbo head of fresh garlic, certified organic
You'll need to provide the olive oil, nuts + cheese (if desired)!
The Farm at Sunnysideis managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)
The farm borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on theirwebsite. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!
