Heirlooms for Thanksgiving

Heirlooms for Thanksgiving

Kubena Farm

Farmer Profile: Kubena Farms

Three years ago, Steven Kubena of Kubena Farms decided to take the plunge and go into business growing fruits and vegetables on the family farm. Since then, Steven has been hard at work on the farm in Seguin, TX growing everything from juicy spring strawberries to some of the biggest heads of winter cabbage around... As you plan your Thanksgiving feasts this year, you might consider buying your family’s food directly from a family farmer you know and trust. If you’d like to purchase fruits, vegetables, or canned goods from Kubena Farms, you can find them at the SFC Farmers’ Market at Sunset Valley...

If it’s not too late to add another dish to your table this Thanksgiving, try this winter squash recipe for some great fall flavors. And if your menu has been set in stone for weeks, it would also be an excellent fit for your post-indulgence transition back to lighter eating. Because it’s a little sweet and a little savory, it will go great with your holiday leftovers....
