Brockway Sweetcorn Farms...Mark and Ann a commitment to excellence.
When Mark Called to let me know the crops were coming up I wasted no time getting to the Brockway Sweetcorn Farms. Ok...it's much more then that, swiss chard, peppers, corn, herbs, tomatoes, fresh garlic, flowers, Hot peppers, pumpkins and a lot more!
Located on hwy 67 about 1/2 mile on the right past Alcoa, look for the Brockaway Farm sign, a classic red tractor and an American flag.
Now you have to know that all the crops are organic. Grown with stream feed irrigation and fish based fertilizer. Right away you notice the butterflies, frogs, bumble bee's Mark say's it's the organic nature of the farm. Theirs nothing on the farm that has the ability to kill. Unlike a traditional corn field where there is nothing alive due to the pesticides.
Ann, Mark's boss and marriage partner mans the retail produce stand and is a awesome cook!
Last year she gave me a dish made with swiss chard cooked in sesame oil and garlic WOW unbelievable. Their are many different types of chard on the farm. Here's my recipe and some pictures of the dish I made today.
A bed of greens makes a delicious accompaniment to Arctic char. Serve with buttered rice or pasta if you like.
1 bunch Swiss chard 5-6 stems , 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, thinly sliced 3 cloves garlic, Pepper to taste Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 teaspoon soy sauce 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil.
