A Taste of the Country in the City

October 17th, 2010 by Ichi Vazquez

It is common knowledge that New Yorkers love good food. The city has a wide variety of delicious foods with plates from all over the world, and weekly markets with fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.

In Hamburg, Pennsylvania, a place called Eckerton Hill Farm has received attention for its amazing variety of tomatoes and chili peppers, and its presence in the Union Square Greenmarket on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. On occasion, New Yorkers have made their way to Eckerton Hill for the annual pig roast. But if you’ve never been to the farm, that’s okay. Chances are, you’ve tasted this farm’s tomatoes at a restaurant you’ve been to recently, like Peaches HotHouse in Bedstuy.

Farm manager Tim Stark, 48, talks about Eckerton Hill Farm:
