One of the first vegetables to arrive, nothing says spring like the crisp, fresh taste of peas. Our photo feature this issue comes to us from Ort Family Farm in Bradford, NY. Roger and Maria Ort primarily produce free range meats and open pollinated vegetable plants. However, a significant portion of their yard is composed of raised beds, in which they grow vegetables for themselves and occasionally for market in their on-farm store or farmers market booth.
