What is that you smell? Zucchini Bread? Pumpkin Rolls? Frittata? Stuffed Pepper Soup? Cookies!?! When you take a tour of Hope Springs Farm, you are bound to smell something savory being concocted in the kitchen. A week never passes where a new creation is not being made. The Growers work in the garden and greenhouse and then use their harvests for recipes. They plant seeds, see the seeds sprout, witness the beauty of the blossoms, gather the bounty, and then prepare dishes fit for a King! (Well, not always..!) Sometimes, we have failures (like those cookies with a tablespoon of powder instead of teaspoon of soda), but it is always fun! Some of our Growers have never had the opportunity to bake or cook, so we teach them how to measure ingredients, make a creation, and have fun at the same time! Did I mention that time when we just added the powdered sugar to the mixer and someone turned it up full blast and the ingredients went EVERYWHERE!?! There is never a dull moment in our kitchen! Being able to follow a recipe, using fresh ingredients from your own garden, and creating a dish from scratch is somewhat of a rarity these days. When the Growers see (and taste!) the final product, they are so proud of what they accomplished. To give the Growers a meaningful and blissful life is how we thrive. We cannot think of a sweeter experience!
