Three Squares

Three meals a day are prepared here on the farm, all with ingredients that are grown on the farm. What's incredible is that this farm has been feeding over 300 mouths a day as people come and go for lunch or dinner or peel themselves out of bed at first light and stumble into the kitchen tent for fresh fruit, eggs, tortillas and other goodies made that morning. There were three women who were running things when I got there and they were logging between 6-9 hours a day cooking for everyone on the grounds.

Without a doubt the food is good. And the fact that housing (which is really a tentspace) and all meals are taken care of is a big reason why folks are coming from all over to meet and shake hands with the farmers. Every meal is vegetarian and completely filling and for those of us meat and dairy lovers there are plenty of options as well.

  • Word is that the Annenburg Foundation has just offered to purchase the farm for $16 million. No comment from Ralph Horowitz yet.

    Fingers crossed!

  • Hello,
    Love your blog and have a suggestion. It seems that Mr. Horowitz has very little incentive to accept any offer presented by the farmers and is adamant out spite and resentment. With all of the worlwide publicity that this issue has received, it seems like a great time to reveal more about Mr. Horowitz. What other properties does he own, who are his tenants? What businesses does he own or have interest in? Who are the proposed tennents of the this new warehouse he's proposing. Money and bad press speak much louder than the vostes of the neighborhood. It's sad to say, but it's true. Embarass and boycott Mr. Horowitz's business relationships and the time may come when it doesn't matter what he builds there; no one want to pay for it.
    I know if I found out that Starbucks, CVS or any mainstream America business was renting mini mall space in a Horowitz developed strip mall, they'd be getting nasty letters from me and I wouldn't be buying their products. Of course finding that information is the tricky part.

    Just a thought, keep up the good work.
