Hepworth Farms Local Organic Thyme
From a quick omelet to a simmered stew, just about any savory dish benefits from fresh thyme's slightly minty lemon flavor. It's a key ingredient in the classic French bouquet garni, a perfectly balanced mixture of thyme, parsley, and bay leaf bundled in cheesecloth. This bouquet is essential to French soups, stocks, and sauces. Established in 1818, Hepworth Farms is one of the premier organic growers in the Hudson Valley. Under the direction of sisters Amy and Gail Hepworth, this FreshDirect Partner Farm serves as a leader and inspiration for responsible and sustainable agriculture. Hepworth Farms preserves and maintains approximately 550 acres of biodiverse and nutrient-dense soil in Milton, New York, just 1.5 hours north of New York City. During their peak growing months from May through late November, they provide a full assortment of vegetables including tomatoes, beans, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cucumber, eggplant, peppers, zucchini, lettuces, greens, roots, and squashes. Hepworth Farms also offers popular spring and summer farm shares.
