The Santa Ynez Valley is certainly becoming a foodie destination, which is hardly surprising given our tremendously delicious wines. My bud, Natalie Werk, who, with her husband, owns a fabulous 25 acre farm in Los Alamos, just called to tell me that she has opened “The Shack” which offers a just-picked array of organic vegetables and gorgeous flowers.
Quality Produce. While I plan to stop there before the weekend is over, I know with certainty that The Shack is offering top notch produce. Jamie Glick, who, with his partner John, owns the fabulous Bell Street Farm, is a customer. And if you know the Bell Street Farm food, you know that this cool Los Alamos spot uses the best ingredients. Also, I have been part of Natalie’s short list for receiving a dozen eggs from her farm every now and then. And these eggs are the bomb! I am hoping to receive a dozen for having written this great post! BTW, Natalie is a great cook and fellow foodie, so you might extract some recipes from her.
The vege selection this weekend includes:
Long Lasting Flowers. Natalie tells me that the flowers offered at “The Shack” are picked each morning and should last at least in your home at least a week.
Flowers available this week include:
According to Natalie’s message, these are all grown with “love and devotion”….a bit much girl.
Location: The Shack is located on the Werk’s Camp 1 property, 4300 Hwy 135, in Los Alamos. From the Santa Ynez Valley, hop onto the 101 and go about 10 miles to the Bell Street 135 exist. Follow the exit to 135, take a right, go through this cool old town and Camp 1 is the first property on the left once you have passed through town. Look for The Shack. By the way, The Shack was built by the Werk’s son Max as a birthday present for Natalie.
Days and Times: Friday-Sunday, 10 am-5 pm.
