We at MAS have had what can only be described as a record year for local produce, poultry, wild harvested and game foods. With several years of srought behind us we finally broke through with Spring and Summer rains plentiful enough to help sustain local growers and farms through two full seasons. Notwithstanding the rains, the skill and diversity of local artisan and heritage farmers is extraordinary and much appreciated. I would personally like to thank the following for helping MAS preserve and present some very tasty and traditional tapas through their undying support for organic and sustainable practices: Piedmont Environmental Council, Double H Farm, Roundabout Farm, Manakintowne Specialty Growers, Gryffon's Aerie Heritage Meats, Bessette Farm, Planet Earth Diversified, United Export Services, Caromont Farm, and all the little wild harvesters that brought us beautiful morels, hen-of-the-woods, matsutake, and chanterelle mushrooms. Did I mention the numerous neighbors who generously shared their tomatoes, basil and herbs with us. We salute you and support all you are doing. See you next Spring!
