WILD LEEK WEEK April 15-28, 2011

“Here’s what a whole ramp plant looks like, but a more sustainable harvesting practice is to refrain from digging up the plants and harvest the leaves only”.

Wild & Cultivated Farm and Equinox Farm in Great Barrington ramp up the growing season with WILD LEEK WEEK, a ramp-tastic array of savory bites prepared by area chefs with these first green shoots of the season.  Come ramp with us!
