Visit to Cate Farm

7 Apr

For the final class of Junior F.O.O.D. we took a trip to Cate Farm in Plainfield, and had a great time seeing their little seedlings, and hanging out in the warm greenhouse! Sally showed us various methods of extending the season, and also how start seedlings (Cate Farm has a seedling sale starting in mid-May).  We also had the opportunity to visit Vermont Salumi, a recently started company, run by Sally’s son, Pete. We learned a lot about how to make sausage (maybe more than the kids would have like to know!), parts of the pig, and where Pete learned to make sausage in Italy.  It was definitely a learning experience, and smelled great as a plus!
