New Home for Kazy Farm

It’s true Kazy Farm has a new home!

As of the begining of March, we moved the farm to the beautiful Salmon Valley, just outside of Salmon Arm.  We purchsed a 6 acre farm with house and shop and are excited about its possibilities.

The first month on the farm has been filled with unpacking, seeding and building a greenhouse.  Thank you to all of our friends that have helped us move, get settled and get the greenhouse up!

We are looking forward to our first season at our permanent location.

Garlic Scape Pesto Recipe

The scapes are milder than the bulb of the garlic, yet still provide a nice texture and flavorful alternative to classic basil pesto. You can vary the taste by using different nuts (walnuts, almond or hazelnuts) or asiago cheese.

1/2 lb. Garlic Scapes (about 13-15 scapes)
2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1/3 cup Pine Nuts
1 cup extra-virgin Olive Oil
Juice from half a Lemon
Sea Salt

Rinse garlic scapes well in cold water and pat dry. Cut scapes into 2-4” pieces and place in bowl of food processor.

Add cheese and pine nuts and chop until just coarse.

With food processor running, slowly pour in the oil and blend until smooth. Add lemon juice and blend well. Add salt to taste.

Garnish w/pine nuts for dip or toss with pasta. Makes about 2- 1/2 cups.

Pea Shoots and Green Onions

The first produce of the season! 

Pea shoots are delicious on a salad or on their own.  Our kids eat them by the handful.  Shoots are the tender young pea plants and they have a wonderful flavour.
