Winter 2012

Grist for the Mill

A few months ago, Eileen Roaman, a Springs resident who raises bees and chickens and keeps a home garden, had a seasonal epiphany. The number of families visiting local food pantries swells in winter, just as many nearby farmers have lost their main roadside customers.
So, working with the Amagansett Food Institute, Roaman quickly raised $15,000 in small and large donations, bought crops from a group of local farmers and delivered it to local pantries.

local and seasonal items sit alongside high-quality
imported artisanal products—olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, ghee,
dried porcini mushrooms, salt-packed capers and anchovies, and
salami, lardo and pancetta from Salumeria Biellese in Manhattan.
