Kruger's Farm

 Wow!  Kruger's Farm definitely got the Farm to Table
concept right!  Everything was delicious and just added
to a perfect summer evening on the farm under a huge oak tree.
 We were greeted by Mr. Kruger himself and he was a delight.
The appetizers were amazing from ricotta stuffed squash blossoms,
lovely cheeses and fruit, plus their own pickled veggies.
 Sitting here with people we would soon get to know from
all over the world was pure JOY.
 The evening breezes were amazing.
 Salad, fresh green beans, corn picked that morning,
squash, and grilled salmon all delighted our palate.
There was a beautiful veggie tart for several vegetarians.

 Dessert was blueberries picked nearby on the farm 
served with ice cream and an almond tart.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was an
evening highlight of the summer for me.
Now if you just want to stop by the farm market for fresh produce
or to pick a beautiful bouquet of flowers that works too.
I am always out there when it comes to Gravenstein apple season
because I can depend on them to have my favorite apple.

What a wonderful way to enjoy an evening. Fresh is best and I can imagine how wonderful the vegetables and fruits all tasted! The almond tart sounds delicious.

This place looks fabulous, Marilyn. So good -- love that farm to table concept.

You should link to this post on your other blog, get more folks to it -- something like (For a visit to the best example of farm-to-table I've seen lately, visit my other blog, Beautiful PDX.) I keep forgetting to mention that!
