A few years ago I was able to visit Earthbound Farm in Carmel Valley, California. It was fun to go to the farm since I have purchased a number of Earthbound products over the years. I was recently able to go back and had a lovely time yet again!
Spending some time with my family, outside, among fresh, happy plants, is a finer thing!
My favorite part was the organic herb garden. I didn't realize that so many herbs had multiple varieties. And every herb has a nice little sign so they can easily be identified. It was very educational for me!
You can snip fresh herbs and buy them. But I was inspired to get my herb garden going at home! So many of them grow like weeds, which is prefect for a lazy gardener like me 🙂
The kids really enjoyed the Kid's garden. They ran around and around.
The baby enjoyed being outside and even got a bite of ice cream! She wasn't sure what to think about it though. We also put a chamomile flower between her toes 😉
They have a little store with fruit, vegetables, and some specialty items. I bought some roasted walnut oil for a salad dressing I've been wanting to make. Recipe to come…if it's good 🙂
Last time I visited Earthbound farm I purchased co-founder, Myra Goodman's book, Food to Live By. It has become a favorite. Especially the Maple Almond Granola recipe. Mmmm.
