A Chef’s Heaven at O’o Farm

7 Comments 14 November 2013

“I’m a farmer.” He said. I looked over this young man with his sleek sunglasses, and curly hair pulled back in a pony tail – he didn’t look like any farmer I had ever met before. But then again I was used to my grandfather smoking a cigarette, wearing overalls, and driving a tractor in [...]
