We’re All About the Peppers

Posted by Bart Goodell in Events, People/Culture

The collective 10Red team donned their boots and trekked out to the pepper fields last week, its what we do here in Central New York when the leaves start to turn.

All in all, we picked about 23 pecks of beautiful ripe peppers from the Matthew25 Farm in nearby Tully, NY.  The farm had grown an entire field of Bell Peppers, Jalepeno Peppers, Banana Peppers and a few rogue Eggplants – Silas & Chris even chomped a few Habaneros along the way.  Aubrey coordinated our efforts to donate to the local Solvay Food Pantry.  “Brother Jim” who runs the pantry was very thankful and excited to receive the fresh produce.

Hats off to Rick Rarick and crew at the Matthew25 Farm who grow the crops every year to support the multitude of regional food pantries.    Rick, we had a great time helping out – we’ll see you next year!
