Musicians and other performers who play at farm venues and events like Fall Family Fun Days at Weaver’s Orchard have a unique perspective while onstage. Farmers create food, while those who perform in agricultural scenery create songs, sounds and stories. In some cases, the stories of festival performers have been crafted from their own new words, and in other cases they are stories retold and reimagined as musicians cover classic songs. Or lessons are shared through conversations and flying objects, as in the case of juggling. The parallels and peace which performers often comment on feeling at farm venues show how important our connection to the land truly is, especially today in a world that’s rushed and never away from the persuasion of technology for long. Orchards teach us what we need to get back to in ourselves, and the kinds of people who perform at farms do the same for us through what they create. EMazinGRACE, based Read More...
It’s kiwiberry season! I nearly jumped for joy when I saw the first of these sweet and tasty green berries on the shelf for the first time this fall. Kiwiberry harvest begins in early to mid-September and continues through late October or early November, so thankfully these delightful snacks are available for close to two months a year. Why am I so crazy about kiwiberries? Here are my top 5 reasons: They are deliciously sweet, and make the perfect little snack. While I love using kiwiberries in recipes, honestly, they hardly last beyond snack time, so it's rare to have a chance to cook with them! When I do cook with them, though, one of my favorite recipes is Kiwiberry Mint Chip “Nice" Cream from Tracey Rezapour of Keepin’ it Real. We came across her recipe on her website when we were considering asking her to be a presenter at our cooking Read More...
What makes a good school lunch? Creativity and advance planning, if you talk to Tracey Rezapour of Keepin' It Real. As a real-food advocate and health coach, Tracey believes in eating healthy whole foods for every meal. In 2012, the Rezapour family made a switch in their diet. They decided to eat more "real food" and less processed food. Now, Tracey makes more foods from scratch. As she does so, Tracey's practical nature is refreshing. She knows how challenging it can be to pack school lunches kids will love. What her six- and eight-year-old children consider to be good lunches varies from week to week. Liking carrots this week might not mean those crunchy veggies are welcome the next. So she gets busy searching for ideas and mapping out her options and has advice and ideas to share. A Dash of Creativity... Sometimes a good old PB&J does the trick for the Rezapour kids. Sometimes Tracey has to get more creative Read More...
