Local farms provide us with fresh produce and herbs
Over the years we have established relationships with local farms to bring you the best produce and meats that we can find. For the last two months, Uncle Gussy’s has been serving you local, fresh produce from two farms located in the North Fork region of Long Island. If you are interested in picking your own, we found a site called Pick Your Own, where you can take the family and see first hand how your food is grown. This site features farms in Long Island New York and we are happy with the products we get from these farms.
We have been getting our tomatoes from Douglas Cooper Farm in Mattituck. At this particular farm, you can pick your own or purchase tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, beans, peppers, eggplant, and okra.
Our mixed greens come from Satur Farms where they grow specialty salads, leafy vegetables, heirloom tomatoes, root vegetables, and herbs. The neat thing about the owners of this farm is that they are husband and wife, one is a chef and the other a wine consultant for famous restaurants in New York City.
Support farms local to you across the U.S.
If you needed to know about Community Supported Agriculture programs in your area, you can go to Local Harvest. In this website you can put in your state and it will show you the local organic farms that sell meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. As you know Greeks will stop at nothing to get the freshest ingredients right from their own gardens, seafood markets, butchers, and farms to serve to family and friends.
Today’s Special Tomato Gemista
When a chef decides to start his own farm to get the freshest produce possible for his clients, he is committed to know the source of where his food is coming from before he decides to serve it to his guest. We love this idea and that is why the tomatoes are locally grown and stuffed with Greek herbs and ingredients. We use the same ingredients in the tomatoes as we do for the green peppers gemista.
