Last weekend I headed up to Sonoma to meet with some more farmers from the Farmers Guild for this delicious cookbook project I am helping with out with. I met Andrea Davis-Cetina who runs Quarter Acre Farm (which I learned is now actually closer to a half acre!). She is growing some beautiful dry-farmed tomatoes which were super flavorful and sweet.
I then headed north up to Oak Hill Farm to meet David Cooper, their farm manager. Oak Hill is truly an incredible place. Their farm helped establish and is part of a larger 700-acre property protected by the Sonoma Land Trust. David made a delicious watermelon salad that was a refreshing sight in the 90 degree Sonoma heat.
