Wilson Farms

On Saturday Jen and I went to Wilson Farms in Lexington. Jen had heard a bit about it previously, but neither of us really knew what to expect. After being greeted by the ponies, we wandered through an outdoor market where we were drawn to the delightful smell of fresh cider donuts. We sampled some delicious carrot soup. Inside was a gourmet grocery store with a lot of farm-grown produce, baked goods, and prepared foods. We tried not to go too crazy, eventually ending up with a sourdough baguette, fresh spinach pasta (which we cooked and immediately ate with olive oil, tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella when we got home), apple cider, chocolate milk, eggs, a dozen cider donuts, and some potato leek soup (which we ate for dinner). It was a bit too far for me to make it a regular shopping destination, but I’ll definitely go back at some point; the food was very tasty and fresh. I picked up their cookbook too (only $5) so hopefully I’ll get around to making a few recipes out of it in the next few weeks.

    Hi Wing! A patient told me about this place too. I’d love to join you guys next time you go. It is hard for me to motivate myself to go on my own… It sounds yum-o.
