When City Green farmer Henry Anderson reached out to Razza chef Dan Richer about an abbondanza of a crop, the magic of farm-to-table cookery was ignited.

Muth Family Farm

The most important crop at this certified organic farm in Williamstown is soil. That’s why all the vegetables and fruits grown by Bob and Leda Muth taste so darn good.
