Squash, greens, tomatoes, onions…sounds like a recipe, right? Actually it’s a basket of fruits and vegetables from Villa Romano Farms. Every other Friday, VR Green Farms delivers fresh baskets to my school for parents and faculty to purchase. The baskets have all the ingredients we’ll need to make dinner that night. Last Friday there were two pizza rounds, tomatoes, mozzarella, vegetables, herbs and pasta. Yum! What an awesome dinner.
Besides delicious baskets, VR Farms offers gourmet treats, sunset tastings, birthday parties and much more. You can visit them at the Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club (200 Avenida La Pata, San Clemente) every Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm.
I went last Saturday and spoke with Nick, the owner and farmer. He has some interesting things to say about the history and goings-on of the farm. Check it out!
