We are living in a time when, yes you can type, 'kohlrabi' into google and come up with a million recipes. But it takes so long to look through them all to find a GREAT recipe.

Many recipes online are either full of ingredients that are not staples in my kitchen, they are way too fussy to make, or they use foods that aren't in season at the same time.

I built the recipe archive because its the resource I want that I have never been able to find anywhere. It includes simple, delicious home cooking using:

  • Pantry staples
  • Seasonal ingredients
  • Low-fuss prep methods

No more having to watch youtube ads to get to watch a one minute video about green smoothies or searching through long blog posts and copy and pasting recipes from your computer.

All our resources are in one easy to use format!

If you are completely new to home cooking or if you are wanting to brush up on a skill you've never tried all the 101 skills are included in one place!

Hi! I'm Mandy Gerth farmer and co-owner at Lower Valley Farm in Kalispell, MT

I didn't grow up eating food from the garden or cooking with simple seasonal foods. I started the journey of how I cook now about 20 years ago, when my cooking skills weren't much more than boiling water and making salad.

I had a life-changing experience as I started to learn kitchen skills and began to cultivate a small kitchen garden.

Now that I run a farm that feeds over 500 families a week, it's hard to look over our fields and believe this was my humble garden ten years ago.

What started as an interest in gardening has turned into my career as an organic farmer.

I absolutely love growing organic produce AND it's not enough for me just to grow food.

I want to give to other folks like me, people who want to change how they eat in a way that is sustainable not just for the planet but sustainable for the workload of the home cook.

Raising our children on fresh food has been one of the most profound blessings of my life.

I want to be able to go back to when the kids were tiny and teach myself everything I know now. I used to spend so much time checking out mountains of library books and searching online just to find a few recipes and techniques that would work for me. Learning how to cook and setting myself up for success in the kitchen has been a LONG process.

I want to share all the knowledge I've learned with you.

It's my goal for you to skip the steep and overwhelming learning curve I experienced when I made a commitment to changing how my family eats. I will help you transform your shopping, meal planning, food prep, and approach to cooking.

The LVFarm Academy is a collection of tools, resources, and guides for you to use to incorporate seasonal food into your daily life.

I am so happy you are here and very excited to share my resources with you to help set you up for seasonal eating success.
