Here we go spring! True to our Urban Farmer roots, it’s one of our most eagerly anticipated seasons as resident apiarist and garden whisperer Chef Chris Starkus thoughtfully curates our rooftop garden.
Urban Farmer Portland’s 4 rooftop hives are home to 12,000 Hungarian honey bees which will yield 12-15 gallons of micro batch honey. An ideal complement for the Rogue River bleu on the artisanal cheese plate curated specifically to your tastes tableside, but don’t be surprised if it finds its way into your Bees Knees cocktail.
What’s in the seed bank for this season you ask? English thyme, Trinidad scorpion peppers, bloody duck sorrel, yellow Thai chilies, golden purslane, miner’s lettuce, Spanish red garlic, Mt. Hood strawberries, borage, Cascade hops, Mexican gherkin watermelon cucumbers, purple dwarf snap peas, ice box watermelons…just to name a few.
