1859 Oregon Magazine: La Terra Vita

La Terra Vita is everything it's name implies and more.  But there should be a tag line somewhere in there noting La Famiglia Vita because that's what makes the place.   Lucie + Art, both mathematicians in a former life, have transformed their 76 acre spread into a CSA {Community Supported Agriculture} dream and, no small feat, kept their humor and joie de vivre intact.  If it weren't for the fact I had a kid to pick up from the sitter, the lure of a cold beer and an accordion serenade would have kept me there well into the night.

They have a booth at the PSU Farmer's Market and I highly recommend their greens {sauteed with a little garlic and served over Israeli Couscous}.  And you can read more about their adventures in farming over at 1859 .
