Growing Veterans, Lynden, WA – honey lunch.
I’d like to tell you about a wonderful experience I had recently. I read on my Facebook feed that Growing Veterans was having a class on honey beekeeping and that afterwards they were having a barbecue lunch. So, I promptly got a hold of Joel, the farm manager, and ask him if I could come and cook lunch for them. He was more than happy with my offer. So that Wednesday I went out to the farm to look around see what type of facility and what I could cook. I immediately started working on developing a menu and during the tour of the farm Joel showed me the species of hops they were growing for a special beer a local brewery was going the produce with a Growing Veterans label.
Growing Veterans was founded by a combat wounded USMC veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, Christopher Brown, and a former mental health counselor turned farmer, Christina Wolf. Together, they agreed using the farm as the catalyst for human connection and veteran reintegration could have a powerful impact on the health and well being of not only vets returning home, but the world. They were crazy enough to believe it could happen, and just smart enough to pull it off.
By allowing food to rotate over the coals, from hot to cold zones, the TurboGrill not only keeps your food from burning, it allows food to cook very evenly and retain more moisture; creating a very succulent; crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, results.
