What a week! I never stop, I never slow down. I was heading out this morning at 10am to work and immediately thought of my CSA share! I thought of passing this …week and as soon it came to my mind, I felt upset with myself and immediately went right, the opposite way from work to Sharpsburg and headed to Aliabaad Farm. I was 100% pressed for time!
I arrived to the farm and of course who greets me, Ali. I take my time (all the time in the world with with him of course) because he’s such a pleasure and a great person to speak with and bounce convo of recipes, good eating, canning and exciting catch up from the last time we spoke. He asked me how my canning was going and I explained I was just way to busy these days and he didnt take no for an answer.
He pushed beautiful heirloom and 2nd tomatoes on me. My plans for tomorrow has now switched and they so desperately needed too and I cant thank him enough. I needed his visit today to be reminded to slow down and remember me. The important things that I enjoy like; good foods we take in, preserving them for winter that literally gives me “therapeutic time” while doing it.
I dropped off my goodies at home, worked 7 hours and thought of today while driving up the up the road to home and switched gears. Ive already canned 7 pints of green beans this evening.
Thank you, Ali. I really needed our visit today more then you know and I have a lot of work “therapeutic me time” ahead of me tomorrow. The greens were successful by the way wink emoticon
Our abundant vegetables and fruits purchased at your farm recently exceeded our expectations! Everything was exceptionally over-the-top delicious! I appreciate the recipe for the eggplant pie on your website! Looking forward to goat cheese and eggs next! Thank you for your hard work, integrity and presence in our Montgomery, Frederick, Washington Counties vicinity!
I picked up a dozen of your eggs at Wholefoods in Kentlands recently.Very very good eggs.I hope to be able to continue buying them at Wholefoods in the produce section. Thank you.
Your farm is a valuable asset to Washington County because seeing it in person is like taking a happy pill! It's inspiring and such a wholesome, healthy place!
Congratulations on making the front page of the herald. Now you are going to have to grow more veggies so there is enough for me. Thanks for doing such a good thing and doing it so well.
Congratulations, Ali, on your tremendous award. What an achievement!
Sylvia and I are grateful to have you as our neighbor on Mills Road. Thank you not only for the wonderful produce and the organic farm, but also for appreciating the unique Civil War and Lincoln heritage of the site.
We are so happy for you!
Very impressive farming method and no chemical what so ever for weeds and bugs yet the produce look really health. Way to go and congratulations :)
The chicken from your farm is the best I have had in the past 10 years!! My dad told me that he immediately felt the quality when he started cutting them into smaller pieced for cooking. I have never bought any chicken like that from any stores in the US. Thank you very much for offering them!
Best wishes to you and your farm!
Today was one of my best experiences in the beautiful Aliabad Farm! Joyful, fun, with the most wonderful host in the entire world Mr. Ali.
My special thanks to you!!!
The PRODUCE from Aliabaad farm is truly the best ORGANIC produce in our area! Thank you for your hard work.
This is our first CSA experience and we are very happy with all the fresh and delicious vegetables. Our weekly bag full of vegetables and leaves is more than enough even for a family of vegetarians.
Thank you very much.
