Tabula Rasa-the farm kitchen
- Farm kitchen update!
- We are about to start construction improvements to our big red farm building. It has generally been an agricultural building for our operations and has happily expanded into a community gathering place. With that growth we are making improvements to handicap accessibility (both with the restrooms and parking lot) and upgrades to the kitchen within. So, we cannot do hot food or pizza until all that goes through, which may not be until the fall.
- Meanwhile we are offering deli-style foods prepared on-site from products from our farm. Dave and Aaron, our masterminds of the farm kitchen, continue to brainstorm and develop delicious foods with our farm’s twist that you can eat when you come to Rising Silo, our farm stand or our stall at the Blacksburg Farmers Market. Our menu can be found here and changes with what is coming in seasonally on our farm.
All items farm-made right here and served labeled and packaged.
Vegetables, herbs and ducks all raised here. Ducks are raised on pasture and fed organic feed.
