On our way home from Jacksonville, Florida we stopped for a farm visit at Congaree and Penn! They are Florida's only rice farm! Meet Scott and Lindsay, the farmers! It was such a pleasure learning more about rice, as well as their farm vision! They are also growing olives, may-haws, blackberries and more! You can find shrubs, jellies, rice and grits all produced on their farm over on their website! (Locally you can find them on the menu at Rooster & the Till as well as a small selection at Jug & Bottle Dept.) They are also in the middle of building a cidery! Needless to say they are busy! If you want to check out the farm send them a message or attend one of their chef run dinners. The next one coming up is a crawfish dinner on March 17th. xo, Illene Sofranko
