After much hard work, the Wilson Street Urban Farm is opening their doors for consumers. As of right now, they are selling garlic scapes for $5.50/lb. or $.50 for a bundle of five.
These scapes are the seed heads of the garlic plant and taste slightly milder than aged garlic cloves. They are great in salads, stir-fries, or anything that requires garlic.
But there is more going on in the farm than that. The Stevens are just getting started, planting a variety of things as an experiment to prove the possibilities of the farm.
They have planted lettuce, tomatoes, collard greens, mustard greens, kale, beans, turnips, scallions, zuccini, and peppers. These crops were planted in abundence but the Stevens don’t actually know how they will produce. Hopefully, this experiment will result in a prosperous growing season!
Because the farm doesn’t have a stall as of yet, if anyone is interest in buying the garlic scapes, you can come to the Stevens’ front door at 812 Filmore Avenue or place an order by calling 716.853.7316. At the Wilson Street Urban Farm, they’ll pick your order fresh.
