PMA Foodservice Expo is this weekend and we're very excited to be returning! Make sure you stop by the Babé Farms booth to see our full line of colorful, specialty veggies. Come say "hello" to our team at booth #318!
Last week was the Santa Barbara County Fair and Babé Farms definitely made its presence known. Our awesome booth was set up by Carrie Jordan and Judy Lundberg with plenty of colorful veggies. In regards to livestock, Lundberg kids, Eddie and Karli raised hogs to compete in market and showmanship classes! The 2016 Fair was definitely a big win for the Babé Farms family!

Our sales force just got a little stronger with the return of our friend Adrian Duncan! Adrian was on maternity leave for the birth of her son, Christopher. This came at the perfect time since her daughters are on summer break. Adrian said that the bulk of her time off was spent outside, either camping or at the park with her kids. We are glad to have her back behind the sales desk!
Recently, we've been experimenting with new recipes for Babé Farms produce. Here are a few thing we came up with:
-Coq au vin, made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Baby Purple Carrots.
-Baby Green and Purple Kohlrabi, Baby Pink and White Carrots, and Gold Beets seasoned with pink salt and garlic, cooked in duck fat with fresh thyme.
-Sliced Watermelon Radishes with chopped medjool dates and crumbled goat cheese
Tours of the farm have become a trend recently at Babé. Last week we had two group[s make their way here. First was ResCare from Arroyo Grande. ResCare is an organization that provides services to people with disabilities. Most of the group had never set foot on a farm before so it felt great to give them that opportunity.
The next tour was a group from Los Angeles consisting of some customers of ours as well as chefs that use Babé Farms veggies. This group learned a great deal about our harvesting and packing process and got some new inspiration for their culinary creations. We love giving tours of the farm - send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to plan a visit!
