Do you know what this farm implement attached to the tractor is?
A Roller-Crimper! And the Cheshire County Conservation District has a one available for rent. This is a great chemical free way of knocking down a cover crop for planting.
Does anyone watch CHOPPED? I just saw an episode featuring four school cafeteria kitchen ladies. They elevated school lunch preparation and brought national attention to the need to change what we offer our children. This week let's put radishes in the basket!
Have you ever had cooked radishes? I'm going to try them; why don't you?
Skillet Cooked Radishes
 2 teaspoons cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
 1 tablespoon water
 1 dozen medium-sized radishes, thinly sliced
 “Real Salt” or Himalayan salt, to taste
1. Heat the oil and water in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add the radishes and cook about 5 or 6 minutes, or until soft. Season with salt to taste. Add the cooked radish greens to the skillet and toss radishes and radish greens together. Serve warm.

Feature Vendor
Echo Farm
Echo Farm milks 80 cows and has over 160 cows on the property; half Milking Shorthorns and half Jerseys. The farm lies on 35 acres in Hinsdale, NH (the southwest corner of the state). We're proud to be the first dairy farm in the country to be Certified Humane by Humane Farm Animal care.

We pride ourselves on doing things differently on our farm as evidenced by the production of our unique puddings and our focus on cow care. Cow comfort is one of our top priorities. Our milking cows are allowed to go out twice a day - this gets them off the cement and limits the stress on their joints. Our girls are housed in freestall barns, which means they are not tied up and are free to roam about the barn. They have fresh feed and water available to them at all times, and they sleep on bedded sawdust packs that gives them a soft place to lay down and stretch out.
