ESOPUS CREEK FARM
Just beamed in from the Galaxy was an update on their organic farm in upstate New York, where they are working with farmer and chef Jessica Swadosh to produce greens for their eatery. Rocket, spinach, Jericho lettuce, chard, courgettes (which they call zucchini), tomatillos, Thai basil, sage, rosemary...and maybe parsley and thyme? But not hemp, at least not yet.
All these fragrant herbs are host to six Italian bee hives, so their berries can get pollinated and tea can be sweetened. Hmmm.
Now in its 12th year, the Galaxy is going from strength to strength, still serving up hemp food at 15 Irving Place just north of Greenwich Village. Give them a ring at 212 777 3631 or click here to be beamed up.
