GOOD FAITH FARM



One of the things we love about farmers markets is the discovery of new food products. They most likely are not new but something we have never experienced. We discovered a new find from Good Faith Farms. They sell olives and oils from their farms. They also have raw semi-dried olives. This unusual product caught my eye. I asked for a taste and was immediately hooked.


These olives are not a pretty sight. Once you have tasted you will not care. They are a little chewy. There is a deep rich olive flavor. They claim to be raw but I taste maybe a natural saltiness. These little bites are addicting. They would be great on a salad. I am just snacking on them They will not last long. What a fun and tasty discovery.

That sounds great. Maybe a nice topping on a white pizza? Do you think they add the salt?

They were probably salt-cured (gotta get that bitterness out in order to eat them), and they would still technically be raw. Why do they even bother saying raw, though?
Sounds like a nifty treat.

Three Dogs BBQ, read cookiecrumbs reply. When cookiecrumb talks, people listen. Makes sense.

cookiecrumb, Saying raw is like saying bacon is uncured when in fact it is. (celery juice extract). We did not go to the market this morning because we heard Marin was snowed in.

You couldnt even enter Marin. We are under the dome, and the dome is a giant igloo.

Three Dogs BBQ said...

Are you joking, or was Marin really snowed in?

cookiecrumb said...

3 Dogs: No snow. We are mocking our wimpiness. Pretty cold, though. Citrus trees are in danger. xx

I too was wondering about the raw claim. I was silly enough to eat an olive straight off the tree. I spit it out promptly but the nasty taste lingered.

Chilebrown said...

Greg, Raw is misleading. I will ask them next time I see them at the market.

Thanks for both clarifications Cookecrumb...
