Don’t miss out on these beautiful, local tomatillos from 3 Bug Farm!  Try mixing them in your next batch of guacamole for a cooling burst of flavor: recipe below. 

Cooling Guacamole with Tomatillos + Red Grapes 


2 ripe avocados 
2  tomatillos, chopped
handful of halved cherry tomatoes
1 red onion 
zest + juice of 1 lime
2 cloves minced garlic
1 bunch of halved red grapes
1 hot pepper, minced
bunch of chopped fresh cilantro


Thoroughly combine all ingredients, leaving some cilantro aside as a garnish. For a quick and easy meal, place guacamole on top of black beans, simmered with cumin and garlic, and brown rice. Enjoy! 

The nights are getting cooler, so what not use the abundance of local veggies to make a summer harvest stew? Tip: try blending chickpeas and cashews with water for a rich + creamy (yet delightfully light) base. 


Early, local pears are in!

If you haven’t tried go-en miso yet, we highly recommend that you do. Made by Maine’s only commercial producer of miso, this traditionally fermented product is absolutely fantastic. Add to dressings, marinades, stir frys and soups for a tangy, savory and probiotic-rich burst of flavor! 

We have beautiful local tomatoes, including the much-loved heirloom varieties! Pair them with one of our many local cheeses and fresh basil for a classic summer treat.
