always called them "ta-may-tas". They are best when they are home grown and picked fresh So many yummy things to make out of that big tamayta. Salsa, marinara, sliced with mayo, on a sandwich or salad, soups. Heaven!

Congrats to Carl and his family. Kimball Farm has always produced the best produce. Pepperell is lucky to have such quality produce in town.

I remember buying lots of cider from the farm when he had a press. The cider was the best!

Keep up the great job Carl and congrats on your win! A++
