Exciting news! Our Organic Ginger Syrup has been selected as a 2018 @goodfoodawards Finalist! * We are honored, and proud to be recognized, not only for this delicious and unique elixir, but also for its story and the fantastic crew at Old Friends Farm who continue to pioneer the cultivation of ginger (and turmeric) in the Northeast! Did you know that the story of our Ginger Syrup includes the creation of a (now booming) ginger-growing craze in the Northeast and Beyond? You might say our Ginger Syrup was the seed for the local ginger revolution! * Very special thanks to our dear friends at @realpickles (also selected as Finalists for their Garlic Dill Pickles - made with our garlic!) for whom we grow Organic ginger, turmeric, leeks, and garlic. It was the collaboration with them that initially gave us the inspiration to increase our production. * Thanks of course to the folks at the @goodfoodawards who took the time to not only taste thousands of entries, but also make sure all the Finalists excel in social and environmental responsibility. *📷 @candacehope
#Reposting @realpickles - Did you know that @oldfriendsfarm plants 1.5 row miles (!!) of turmeric?! . Old Friends Farm pioneered cultivating this tender crop in our Northeast climate, and now supply Real Pickles with fresh young turmeric for our Organic Turmeric Kraut. . We are so lucky to be able to enjoy such high quality, organic turmeric (and ginger!) here in the Northeast without the significant carbon footprint that usually comes along with imported turmeric. . Thank you, Old Friends!
Harvesting turmeric for days...
Our largest ginger and turmeric order to date! Harvesting, processing, washing, tagging, boxing, and delivering 2000 pounds of these amazing rhizomes is a huge undertaking for us. Thanks to the whole crew for rallying! #oldfriendsfarmcrew #oldfriendsfarmturmeric #oldfriendsfarmginger #turmeric #ginger #organic #sourcelocal #pioneeracrop #thinkoutsidethebox
