Manresa's Farm Kicks Into High Gear, Locanda Hiring, More!

SANTA CRUZ- Here's an aerial view of Love Apple Farm, the source of everything from eggs to fruit to milk for David Kinch's 2-Michelin-starred Manresa in Los Gatos. The farm recently completed a move to 20-acres of land and things are kicking into high gear at the on-site classroom. There's the monthly class with chef Kinch and his blogger girlfriend Pim, a host of others for the urban farmer, and if you're in the market for tomato plants, check out the sale of 30,000+ plants coming up on the 26th. It's the stuff dreams are made of. [EaterWire]
