Food and News

Local Food: The first Walla Walla onions have arrived, and Steven features them with a trio of Miller Farm Rabbit. One portion of the rabbit is grilled and then slow roasted with a housemade maple barbeque sauce. The loin is wrapped in bacon and roasted with cilantro pesto. Finally, there’s a buttermilk fried leg. The dish includes local black beans from Butterworks Farm, the onions, and a piquant jalapeƱo and a Napa cabbage slaw with just enough mint and cilantro to cool it down a bit.

Earlier this summer, the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund launched the Farm-to-Plate initiative, the result of legislation authored by State Representatives Jason Lorber and Christopher Bray in collaboration with Rural Vermont and Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility. The goal of the initiative is to secure a viable local food system by promoting rural economic development. More information about the initiative is available at Farm to Plate.
