Simple Roots Farm is “two families brought together by a common passion for joining the local slow food movement here at our farm in the Sumas flats of Abbotsford, BC. We believe that food that is in-season, toxin free and grown locally is not only a better choice for your family and for the world, but it also tastes remarkably better.”
My family has been ordering their weekly garden produce box, and it tastes delicious! There is something good about supporting a local farming community and local food that makes dinner even more appealing.
Some of the creations our family has made: a healthy version of zoo sticks (baked zucchini with bread crumbs), sea salted kale chips, roasted beet salad with orange slices and crumbled goat cheese, Russian potato frittata, steamed green beans with lemon and almond butter, and is there anything better than fresh cilantro and just-plucked tomato in a homemade salsa?
Simple Roots Farm also supplies their produce to local restaurants, including Seasonal 56 in Langley. I’ve been following Seasonal 56’s mouth watering Twitter updates (because it’s an ever changing menu) and I have this restaurant on my must-try list.
The farm is harvesting and putting the finishing touches on this years growing season, but they are already thinking about seeds and soil for next spring. Simple Roots Farm would like to add to the Retrospect Photography | autumn giveaway a hand-picked, local selection of fresh, organic fall produce and flowers to the winner.
