My friend Maresa and I recently paid a visit to Ray Bradley’s gorgeous eponymous organic farm, located about five minutes from my kitchen and exactly 2 doors down from Maresa’s house. We were there to take photos of her lovely porcelain quarts for the general store mentioned above, but I couldn’t resist taking some snapshots of the gorgeousness of a working farm in springtime, too.
I use Ray’s super fancy, chef-coveted produce every chance I get. He used to be a sous chef for David Bouley in NYC, so he knows what chefs want to cook with. He regularly sells amazing handcrafted artisanal products like his own paprika, dried hot peppers, pickles, and much more, too. He sells at some NYC markets, too. Get all the info here.
Our pal Kira farms right down the street from Ray, and on the “beware, farmers” sign like this in front of her farm, another of our friends attached a long braid, Kira’s signature hair style, to the sign. Too cute.
