EP///005: Potatoes with Matt Linehan from Sparrow Arc Farm

COOKINGLOGO2.jpg

My guest on Cooking Up A Podcast this week is Matt Linehan from Sparrow Arc Farm in Copake, NY.  Matt is farming on around 200 acres just past the Berkshires.  He started farming in Unity, ME on just an acre hustling down the 5 hour drive to Boston selling mostly arugula in 2006.  He knocked on restaurants doors with his products and built it all up to where he is today. 

 

Growing vegetables and running a farm is Matt. The vegetables he grows are an expression, they have some of his character and energy in them. His radishes have a unique spiciness, his mixed greens are hearty, his turnips are juicy and crisp, his winter squashes have deep developed flavors and his POTATOES! oh man. Matt's spirit animal might be a potato. He is following his heart and doing what he loves are is trying to be the best possible farmer he can be. 

 

He is the real deal, follow him on
