Toast To Compost, Flowers For The Fire, Green Juicing

We continue our conversation from last week about compost. It's one of the few sources warm spots at Bread & Roses. And a recipe for green juice, cheers!

That's not the smell wafting off the compost heap. The steam is a result of the heat produced during the decomposition process.

A serious food pair, definitely sushi. Any type of light meat, fish or cream sauce. Anything that you would pair and nice white wine with, a nice crisp white, try some bubbles.

Champagne for dinner, that’s what Brad Dunn is suggesting. We know you have an extra bottle laying around from New Year’s, so our resident sommelier encourages you to pop it open for dinner one night.

U.S. cattle numbers may be on the rise. Harvest Public Media speculates what that could mean for consumers.

We’re continuing our conversation from last week about composting with a visit to Bread & Roses Gardens. The one place on the farm not covered in snow is the compost heap.

And a green juice for all you folks with eat-healthy New Year’s resolutions.
