HARVESTED BY HAND

Fresh from the organic garden, at Summerfield Farms we plant and harvest our certified organic produce by hand. Summer months feature berries, melons, tomatoes and more, while cool weather crops like collards, bok choy, arugula and root vegetables dominate fall and winter selections. Find the perfect produce to create your favorite farm fresh dishes in The Market, just a few yards away from The Garden.

Volunteering at Summerfield garden was truly a delight to both me and my daughter. We gained so much valuable knowledge on the many different fruits and vegetables.... We are so looking forward to volunteering again in the summer of 2018. Giving back to the community is always a blessing. Working with such friendly staff and experiencing the great treasures at the Summerfield farm made volunteering all worthwhile.

ROASTED GARLIC
RECIPE
INGREDIENTS

12 ounces Summerfield Farms Certified Organic Garlic

2 Ancient Organics Ghee, melted

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a piece of aluminum foil about 12″ x 8″ and line with parchment paper.

Slice off the top quarter of each head of garlic and place cut side up on parchment paper-lined foil. Drizzle with ghee and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold foil and seal to enclose. Transfer foil-wrapped garlic to a baking sheet, transfer to oven, and roast until garlic is golden brown, about 1 hour.

Remove from oven and let foil-wrapped garlic stand until cool enough to handle. Squeeze each head of garlic, gently pressing with your fingers to expel cloves into a small bowl; stir garlic with a rubber spatula to blend thoroughly. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
