Siena Farms Blog
Sometimes we forget how amazing vegetables fresh from the ground really are. We’re here every day rolling in the dirt and basking in the sun – working hard to make sure we’re stocking our farmer’s markets with the freshest of the fresh! Each field is special to us, and we get easily spoiled by snacking on tasty stuff.
It was just last week we invited out the staffs of Oleana and Sofra to see and understand where all their tasty wares start out… in the dirt! We spent a few hours showing eager folks why we’re so passionate about what we do and a conversation came up. Do you know that most people have never tasted a “just dug” potato? When they come straight out of the ground the skins are thin and soft – you can wipe ‘em off with your fingers! The starches also haven’t developed yet so they are more sugar and sweetness than the in-store varieties that have been sitting for who knows how long.
If you love potatoes like we do, try a “just dug” potato this summer. For us, potatoes are a kin to tomatoes – you can surely get them year-round, but when it’s summer and still warm from the sun, well, they’re the best!
