Butternut Squash has a nutty flavor and is sweet like a pumpkin. When ripe, the flesh turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer. It has a long shelf life and is a great countertop kitchen staple. Butternut squash pairs well with sage. Caramelize your sage in butter and drizzle upon your perfectly roasted squash for an incredible treat.
Our 250-acre organic farm is located just outside of Esparto, where rich creek-bottom soil, intense summer heat and winter frost make exceptionally tasty fruits and vegetables. Using certified organic production practices, we cultivate a variety of lush vegetables and fruits year-around. We are proud to raise hogs and meat chickens as well, which roam our pastures, forage, and eat organic feed. We believe that the most wonderful part of farming is having access to both abundant, fresh, pesticide free foods and open space.
