"Look at our farmers markets today, bursting with heritage breeds and heirloom varieties, foods that were once abundant when we were an agricultural nation, but that we have lost touch with. Bringing all these back helps us connect to our roots, our communities and helps us feed America the proper way." - Jose Andres Browse the beautiful Evergreen Brickworks @evergreen_brick_works today. The farmers here are as diverse as the food they produce. #torontofarmersmarket #farmtoflute #farmersfizz

Counting buds in the #geotextile vineyard. The difference between this section relative to the vines that were hilled up is extraordinary. #princeedwardcounty #coldclimateviticulture

Tasting the 2018 Vin Clairs from Champagne inspired us to open one of our Vin Clairs from the stellar 2009 vintage. Remarkably fresh. Lot’s of fruit, still clean with great acids.
