Another great gift idea for those home chef's on your gift list is this lovely cookbook, which also comes with the Farm Experience Box:

The Chef's Garden: A Modern Guide to Common and Unusual Vegetables

About the book:
Near the shores of Lake Erie is a family-owned farm with a humble origin story that has become the most renowned specialty vegetable grower in America. After losing their farm in the early 1980s, a chance encounter with a French-trained chef at their farmers' market stand led the Jones family to remake their business and learn to grow unique ingredients that were considered exotic at the time, like microgreens and squash blossoms. 

They soon discovered chefs across the country were hungry for these prized ingredients, from Thomas Keller in Napa Valley to Daniel Boulud in New York City. Today, they provide exquisite vegetables for restaurants and home cooks across the country.

The Chef's Garden grows and harvests with the notion that every part of the plant offers something unique for the plate. From a perfect-tasting carrot, to a tiny red royal turnip, to a pencil lead-thin cucumber still attached to its blossom, The Chef's Garden is constantly innovating to grow vegetables sustainably and with maximum flavor. It's a Willy Wonka factory for vegetables.

In this guide and cookbook, The Chef's Garden, led by Farmer Lee Jones, shares with readers the wealth of knowledge they've amassed on how to select, prepare, and cook vegetables. Featuring more than 500 entries, from herbs, to edible flowers, to varieties of commonly known and not-so-common produce, this book will be a new bible for farmers' market shoppers and home cooks. With 100 recipes created by the head chef at The Chef's Garden Culinary Vegetable Institute, readers will learn innovative techniques to transform vegetables in their kitchens with dishes such as Ramp Top Pasta, Seared Rack of Brussels Sprouts, and Cornbread-Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms, and even sweet concoctions like Onion Caramel and Beet Marshmallows.

The future of cuisine is vegetables, and Jones and The Chef's Garden are on the forefront of this revolution.

My thoughts:
This cookbook is gorgeous!  It is full of really great information on amazing produce and, of course, tons of superb recipes to help elevate your menu plan with the help of those lovely ingredients!  It is a true treasure trove for anyone who enjoys cooking.

What a fantastic assortment of gift ideas that can be purchased separately or together in the Farm Experience Box!  We are super impressed with the freshness and variety of all of the veggies! By eating wholesome foods, Mother Nature will provide you and your family with vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.  Plus, as a result of Farmer Jones Farm's regenerative farming practices, they have found that their products can contain up to 200 to 500% more mineral content than the USDA average!  You'd be hard-pressed to beat that!

Give the gift of beautiful and nutritious home grown garden-fresh produce and goodies from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef's Garden this Father's Day!
