Farewell and Good Luck, Corey!
Corey "Corndog" Maroney, a long time member of our accounting department has announced he will be leaving Babé Farms to pursue a new opportunity as a senior accountant for the Lucia Mar School district in Arroyo Grande. This position is a perfect fit for Corey who coaches football at Arroyo Grande High School and lives near the campus.

Over Corey's 12 years at Babé Farms our team has cherished our time with him. As we've gotten to know him, we've learned all about Corey's adventures with his wife Sarah and their pets, Minnie, Aussie, and Kitters. Whether he was grilling at a company barbecue or playing in a Fresh Venture Foods softball game, Corey was always willing to do his part to help the team. And who could forget when he won the 65" TV at our annual Christmas party raffle!
Although we are sad to see him go, we wish Corey nothing but the best as he begins this new chapter in his life. We love you, Corndog! GO COWBOYS!!!

Cooking with Scraps

Making the most of your food scraps is a trending topic these days and something we can all practice if we allow ourselves to think outside the box and learn some new techniques. Fruit and vegetable peels, greens, cores, roots, and rinds can all be used in a variety of dishes outlined in one of our favorite cookbooks, "Cooking with Scraps," by Lindsay-Jean Hard. In her book, Hard details how to transform your scraps into healthy and delicious snacks, entrees, and beverages such as kale stem hummus, beet peel margaritas, quick pickles, and carrot top salad! If you're looking to start utilizing your veggies from top to tail you can purchase the book on Amazon here.
We are so excited to share this stunning photo from the talented Daniela Gerson! She had planned a purple-themed radish photo shoot and naturally reached out to Babé Farms for our brand new PURPLICIOUS radishes. Paired with Purple Ninja radishes in this photo, Daniela truly made them pop! Check her out on Instagram and give her a follow.
