Bonjour and Bonappetit...!

I'm Suzanne, lover of all things growing, cooking fresh, and eating well. 

I've always had a green thumb, inherited directly from my tiny Sicilian grandfather who grew all their food on a huge plot with only a hoe.  My French grandmother on my father's side owned, "Le Bon Lait", a dairy store in the south of France where I'm sure I inherited my love of food. Cultivating the earth, the smell and feel of dirt on my hands, and growing produce organically is my thing.  I owned a USDA Certified Organic farm for several years.  Today, I combine my love of growing, cooking and living well all in one spot, here on my page called, Le Farm...Keeping It Simple.
