The local Smithfield farmstand, Jaswell's Farm, is finally open for the season. The farm was originally started in 1899 by Nicola Gesualdi, an Italian immigrant who later changed his name to Nicholas Jaswell. It's still run by the same family more than 100 years later.
This is I guess what might be called the "back office" operations of the farm.
Curt and I paid a visit yesterday in hopes of buying a few local items. In addition to fresh produce, Jaswell's also sells plants and homemade pies and other baked goods. We bought some tomatoes, cucumbers, pickling cukes, asparagus, and homemade muffins.
The label on the asparagus reads "Rhode Island Grown, Take Some Home."
