Happy Cat farm is dedicated to growing the best tomatoes ever in our pursuit of seed-to sauce agriculture. Our micro-saucery is bound to our region. Producing each small batch with the essence of the sun, the landscape and the Brandywine River, Capturing the moments of a Pennsylvania summer. We start with over 40 varietals of our own heirloom tomatoes, slow cook that with our own heirloom shallots and garlic and season to perfection with our free range herbs, add a bit of olive oil and sea salt and you don’t just have a great sauce you have a new addiction
it all starts with our tomatoes, they are sunlight trapped in seed and skin. Each batch of our catsup is made from 40+ varietals of tomatoes. thats a lot of sunlight! Mixed with our onion, celery and shishito peppers. This will change the way you think about Ketchup, excuse me Catsup!
And then there was Jam!
Happy Cat Farms very own Tomato Jam: Our small batch tomato jam is made from the best tomatoes on earth, all grown right here on Happy Cat Farm. Made with an average of 40 varietals of tomatoes per batch our slightly sweet jam pairs so well with cheese, (we have been putting it on Birchrunville’s Fat Cat). Sweetened with a bit of organic white grape juice and then cooked down and spiced with cloves, cardamon and allspice. We will not judge you if you eat the entire jar in one sitting.
Hope you enjoy this I have been getting tons of great feed back and we are looking at doing more video stuff for this up coming year. Hope you are ready for Happy Cat Farm in 2013, going to be a big year!
this is for fathers day, not just my dad but his dad and his dads dad and all that come before and have been gathered up by their grandfathers. I have been planting tons of old beans and corn this last few weeks and have been thinking lots about what Wendell Berry says, ” who will define the slow knowledge?”
I know who, my brothers in this photo who whisper to me on the wind.
A Dinner: On Saturday night Happy Cat was invited by the amazing people at Kinfolk Quarterly.
Actually I stole this photo from the awesome Amy Johnson she is so talented and full of style it makes me sick. I mean really I don’t even look bald in that photo.
Then a Wedding:
Anyone who has come to our farm stand at the Headhouse Market in Philly has meet Big D or Dalana Haas (my cousin).
And yesterday she got married and it was the best wedding I was ever at.
The groom and best men came in on mopeds.
David Big D’s market side kick, came down from Brooklyn to hang with Amy and I.
David me and Tom Culton….trouble
Thank you life for the great weekend.
