Gabriela Herman took these beautiful photographs at Beetlebung Farm on Martha’s Vineyard where chef Chris Fischer hosts informal rustic dinners in the farm’s greenhouse (his family owns the place, and he’s a 12th generation “Vineyarder”). he cooks farm fresh produce like fingerling potatoes and beets dressed with red wine vinegar, salads topped with homemade goats cheese and freshly caught bluefish stuffed with herbs that’s cooked over the fire… holy moly, can you say heaven? heaven.

  1. you timing is perfect… I leave for the Vineyard on Sunday! I’ll be seeking out Beetlebung for sure, i hear they have a little farm stand too.

  2. Looks absolutely wonderful, and the photos are stunning! I grew up on Cape Cod and this makes me miss home!

  3. i think you’ve said it perfectly. that looks exactly what i imagine heaven to be.. geeeeez

  4. those sure are some rusty knives, and grubby fingers, but it all looks delicious, and the photographs really do transport you to a place where you can smell the soil and taste the tomato juice exploding in your mouth! yum!

  5. The hands that are serving the potatoes, so well worn. I love the connection to the food those hands create.

  6. The textures! I love them all. And the whole farm-to-table mentality (if only we all had that luxury).

  7. Love the photos and the whole idea! I may need to jump on that Martha’s Vineyard ferry before the summer is out and seek out beetle bug farm!
