NBC2 Investigation: Is farm-to-table really from the farm?

Southwest Florida restaurants are jumping on the newest menu trend of farm to table, but how do you know what you're getting is really fresh and local? Chances are you've seen a menu promising its part in this farm-to-table social movement, a way for you to know where your food came from. How do you know if you're actually getting what's advertised? That your farm-fresh ingredients weren't actually shipped in from other parts of the country? From chickens to cows to pigs, even a full garden, Rose O'Dell King's Rosy Tomorrow's Heritage Farm spans 100 acres in North Fort Myers. "We strive to be able to feed our community all year long." ...

Osso Buco

Osso buco, translated to "bone with a hole" is much more than its mundane name suggests. Here at the farm we can't get enough osso bucco! Inside that "bone hole" lies vitamin packed marrow with a luxurious texture and rich flavor, outside is melt-in-your-mouth tender beef. This particularly decadent cut of meat is traditionally flavored with mirepoix and bay leaf and topped with the herb and oil mix, gremolata. We thoroughly enjoy this modern version of the recipe, accentuated by tomatoes and white wine. The fat tissue in bone marrow is a great source of the hormone adiponectin. Recent studies show this particular hormone aids in the break down of ...

Farm Focus: Mizuna

We have completely fallen in love with Mizuna, a delicious and nutritional powerhouse. Tender frond-like leaves, it is peppery like arugula, milder than endive or frisée, and it adds delicious depth to green salads, especially those that include slices of fresh apple or pear. Their flavorful leaves are delicious topped on a pizza, stacked on a grass-fed burger, or tucked into a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s terrific in a stir fry or sautéed with garlic, ginger and mushrooms. Mizuna is one of those vegetables that a lot of people haven’t tried but it’s easy to use and a great addition to any meal. Mizuna is a mild tasting Asian green that ...

Fried Duck Egg Sunny-Side Up

You already know how to cook an egg, don’t you? You’re going to want to try this method we learned from Chef John Besh.  He was speaking with Lynne Rossetto Kasper on A Splendid Table.

Duck eggs are a phenomenal treat prepared this way but this technique works great with any farm-raised egg. Fried Egg Sunny-Side Up ……..by John Besh as told to Lynne Rossetto Kasper   When you ...

In SWFL, a completely local Thanksgiving

We were featured in the News Press by reporter Anne Reed, showcasing all the local option for thanksgiving. Here's what she had to say about us: HERITAGE PORK It's not always about the turkey. At Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm in North Fort Myers, the organically raised and pastured 100 percent Red Wattle pigs are in higher demand than previous seasons. Ham and other cuts of the humanely raised and harvested pork are available year-round.
