Delectation of Tomatoes

Principles and ideas which inform the efforts of Delectation of Tomatoes include:

-Optimal human health depends upon consumption of a wide array of nutrient-dense fresh fruits and vegetables, free of harmful chemicals and contaminants;

-Such food is best acquired from backyard gardens or from local farmers who offer their freshly harvested produce through farmers markets, CSA’s, local restaurants and specialty stores;

-Big corporate farms tend to be profit-driven, impersonal, unconcerned about healthy soils and sustainability, typically concentrate money in the hands of the few, and can rarely match the quality, diversity and nutritional levels of locally produced agricultural products.

In light of these considerations, Delectation of Tomatoes offers, specifically to local gardeners and small farmers:

-Seeds of over 3,000 varieties of fruits and vegetables representing a remarkable collection of heirlooms from around the world, including 1,000 varieties which are not tomatoes (i.e. peppers, melons, squash, beans, lettuce, corn, etc.);

-Seedlings of more than 500 varieties each spring, customizable (with advance requests) to the needs and curiosity of individual gardeners and farmers;

-Fresh produce on a limited scale, based upon what is not needed for seed production;

-Service upon request, including lectures, workshops and onsite training about garden and farm planning, extending the growing season, raising food at high elevation, ecologically responsible and sustainable growing practices, seed saving, self-reliance, etc.

If you want to live, you must eat; if you eat, you might as well eat healthy; while you’re at it, please enjoy eating a wide diversity of tasty and interesting heirloom fruits and vegetable from around the world!  Gardening and eating fresh, local, naturally grown food are cheaper than psychotherapy and unnecessary doctor bills which result from diseases which can be largely prevented with good nutrition. The idea is to make these nutritious products so readily available, so interesting and so tasty that people will be far less tempted eat the faux food found in fast and processed “food”.  Enhanced physical, psychological, social and financial health will be some of the benefits that emerge from this endeavor.

You cannot say enough good things about Beltex Meats. My first time in the shop today. They let me taste the deliciousness in the charcuterie display and gave great recommendations on a roast and sausages. The actually properly cut and packaged my meat (I’m a little picky about this). Not only is the in-store experience amazing with a friendly and knowledgeable staff, the meat is mouth-watertingly craveable. More than worth the hour drive from Northern Utah for me! I will be back again soon!

This was the best experience at any butcher/meat shop in the state of Utah. I used their ground beef and smoked bacon to make hands down one the best burgers I’ve had in a long time. Thank you Beltex.
