Members of Influence Central attended a press lunch at Nebo restaurant in Boston to sample the new Somerset Pinks and facilitate this review.
For over two years, the tomato growers of Backyard Farms have dedicated their time and know-how to perfect the growing of Somerset Pink, their newest tomato. This full-flavored gourmet beefsteak tomato is a favorite among connoisseurs and its delicate balance of acidity and sweetness with a smooth texture makes it an essential addition to the kitchen of any produce lover.
The Somerset Pink tomatoes prove the perfect complement to any salad or sandwich, but their lingering sweet taste stands on its own with just a drizzle of olive oil, mozzarella, and some fresh basil. These tomatoes prove difficult to grow, so it’s no wonder that it took the experienced farmers of the incredible Backyard Farms brand to make this happen.
Backyard Farms operates out of 42 acres of state-of-the-art greenhouses in Madison, Maine, growing fresh, ripened-on-the-vine, summertime tasting tomatoes year round. With its socially responsible agriculture practices, Backyard Farms takes care of all factors that go into growing great tasting tomatoes – their farmers, the planet, and the produce itself. All of their tomatoes are grown in Maine without GMO seeds, handpicked by experts, and available on the East Coast from Maine down to the Washington, D.C. area.
The Pallatta sisters continued to amaze with a spaghettini dish featuring Backyard Farms cocktail tomatoes, capers, olives, and extra virgin olive oil.
