You probably already know we grow lots of great produce on the farm we own, Gamble Creek but did you know we also buy from other local farms to bring you the freshest veggies and fruits available?
One such local farm is King Family Farms. We are getting the most succulent and sweetest peaches and blueberries right now from Selby and Ben King. Chef Will at the Beach House is making peach and blueberry cobblers and adding grilled peaches to the just picked and plated Gamble Creek kale. Chef Ian likes to use the blueberries to sweeten his Quinoa salad. We are so lucky to have access to such wonderful farm partners here in our area.
In addition to the fabulous produce we are getting from King Family Farms, we are seeing lots of great produce from our farm like crisp radishes sliced into our salads, heirloom tomatoes, romaine lettuce and pea shoots. Chef George at Mar Vista is pairing the produce with seafood in dishes like his Poki Bowl – diced yellow fin tuna, avocado, onion, poki sauce tossed, cusabi salad, jasmine rice, scallions, sesame seeds served with fried tortillas.
All of the fresh produce adds such great flavor to the dishes we serve and you can taste the difference. We hope you will join us to enjoy our new dishes and taste What is Fresh from the Farm!
