So, as many of you know we bought our house one year ago and decided to turn it into an urban farm. Our additional plan was to grow enough food in that one year time frame to feed all our guests and to have the wedding on our farm. We were successful in this venture. Anything we did buy for the wedding was locally sourced or donated from family friends ie Salazar farms supplied the burgers and we bought hamburger rolls from Great Harvest and cheese from Haystack. Our fruit trees and berry bushes are still too young to have produced fruit so cherries and peaches were purchased from a farm in Palisade. We used some of our honey for the cupcakes but also had to purchase additional honey from a local bee keeping neighbor since our girls are thriving but will need their some of their honey for the winter.
We were able to grow enough collards, herbs, cabbage, tomatoes, onion, garlic, beets, zucchini, and flowers for the wedding. In addition we also produced some of the honey used in the recipes.
I will post the recipes later on this blog for the following things we made at our wedding so stay tuned!
