We've made it to the Red Stick Farmer's Market a couple of times and I managed to get to one down in New Orleans more than once now.
As well as jumping in on a tour of a few of the local farms with Slow Food Baton Rouge. Very excited to share LA's green scene.
This lovely lady greeted us as we drove down the road to Feliciana's Best Creamery where we picked up some delicious milk half way through our farm tour.
This was a little after our stop at the McKowen Farm where we got to hang out with sheep and goats.
We almost skipped out on Yardbird Farm. So glad we didn't
Our little sheeplings never did brave it up enough to get closer than in above video.
Meanwhile down at the aforementioned Yardbird Farm that we almost skipped out on, was by far and away the best of the tour, no disrespect to the other farmer/host/lecturers.
But Yasin and Elaine Muhaimin were informative and entertaining beyond expectations and having been a chicken-man myself, I was certainly a bit biased.
We've been to the Farmer's Market in Baton Rouge a couple of times as well as the one down in Crescent City,
aka NOLA, aka New Orleans
In fact, we picked up a cook book, the Crescent City Farmers Market Cookbook, celebrating and giving a fascinating history of the local food movement down here.
