SPREAD THE WORD
If you are interested in assisting, we are in need of:
What started as a simple contribution to a bacon tweetup is now a full on artisan-crafted food and a gourmet retail product. U-Relish Farm is now located in the Indianapolis City Market main house, and has been making a splash since August.
Executive Manager Cara Dafforn (@CaraDafforn) brought the barbeque red lentils to a bacon tweetup at Left Bank Café hosted by Naptown Buzz in January 2011, and she said the pieces just began to fall together. The concept is simple: Place the package of locally-sourced ingredients into a crock pot in the morning and when you get home there is a slow cooked meal that is preservative free, nutrient dense and delicious.
Even I can cook this one! I went to Target and purchased a small crock pot for $11 and also picked up a lamp timer for $2. Before I leave for work, I pour in the dry mixture, add water, and set the timer. When I come home from work, dinner is already done! Now that’s what I call cooking.
All the ingredients are sourced from local farms and Cara’s own backyard. She also works with an organic co-op based in Iowa and is growing beans in Clay City so they can be a sustainable company. Ideal for single parents, college students, busy professionals, and outdoorsy types, purchase kits at the Indianapolis City Market, Good Earth Natural Food, and Pogue’s Run Grocer.
When you enter the main market building from the south end, just walk straight and you will find Cara on your right. She’ll be the one in the chef jacket and bandana offering your free “smells.” Take a whiff. Buy a bag. Eat local. Tell Cara I say “hi!”
All participants* must bring a bacon treat.
