TFF & The Cooking Project

This week we were lucky enough to link up with The Cooking Project, a local Non Profit that provides free cooking classes to young people right here in the Bay Area!  Chef and Founder Daniel Patterson (James Beard Winner) and Executive Director Sasha Bernstein have done an amazing job connecting culinary experts with kids and young adults interested in learning to cook and learning more about where their food comes from.  Tara Firma Farms was very proud to be able to donate some of our pasture raised chicken quarters to their class this Monday.   Know that your support as members of our CSA and friends of the farm makes donations like this possible - So thank you for continuing to support local, sustainable businesses like ours!
