Heavy, fleshy, and versatile, we can bring you these tangy, sturdy, almost smoky-flavored tomatoes all through the year. In Italy they serve layers of sliced beefsteaks, fresh mozzarella, and whole basil leaves, with a drizzle of good olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar. Top your burger or roast beef sandwich with a thick, juicy slice of beefsteak.
The Black Dirt Region, spanning southern Orange County, New York and northern Sussex County, New Jersey, is home to family-owned farms situated on thousands of acres of deep, richly organic soil — the result of ancient glaciers melting, river overflow and plant decay. The lush valley is best known for its production of the prized "black-dirt onion," as well as other root vegetables.
