Verrill Farm

Verril Farm
I took a drive out to Verrill Farm in Concord today, at the suggestion of one my readers (thanks, EJ!), and he was right: I did enjoy it.

Just driving around Concord is beautiful at this time of year, and the town is anything but short of road-side stands full of pumpkins and mums.Gourds

Verrill's is more than a stand - it's a 200 acre, working family farm, complete with flowers, fruits, and vegetables, plus a full bakery (with custom orders), deli, and a refrigerator full of pre-made meals (everything from mac-n-cheese to lamb shanks). In fact, Verrill supplies fresh produce to many well-known Boston area restaurants.

Tomatoes Here's what I picked up:

  • yellow tomatoes (they had red, green, and purple as well)
  • a purple pepper
  • fingerling potatoes
  • purple string beans (which I'd never seen before)
  • spicy corn salsa (which I just enjoyed over tortilla chips with melted cheese)
  • pepper jack bread
  • and a single-serve pumpkin-maple pudding for good measure :)

Dinner I also picked up a free copy of Edible Boston, a quarterly magazine that "celebrates the diverse food and delicious culture of the Greater Boston Area."
