Episode 308: Farms and Foraging

On this episode of Weekends with Yankee, it’s all about farms and foraging. Our first stop is in Vermont, as cohost Amy Traverso visits the Woodstock Inn & Resort’s spectacular Kelly Way Gardens and learns about cooking with heirloom squash. Then it’s over to Vermont’s Quechee Gorge, which—with its drop of 165 feet—ranks as the deepest gorge in the state. Next, cohost Richard Wiese searches for glass orbs on the beaches of Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island. Finally, Amy goes foraging for mushrooms with Portsmouth chef Evan Mallett of the Black Trumpet restaurant.
