We’ll be open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. in Raritan Township, with the celebratory events kicking off at 10 a.m.

Sunday’s festivities include:

10 to 11 a.m. — A composting demonstration at our rustic classroom with Mark Keating, organic farming specialist at Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey. Keating will demonstrate the basic rules to turn leaves, yard trimmings and food scraps into a rich addition to your soil. “Making your own compost is a great way to boost soil fertility in the garden while keeping organic matter out of the waste stream,” Keating said.

10 a.m. to noon — Late Night Kennel Club will play a non-purebred mix of new and vintage music.

11 a.m. — Anniversary celebration and cake cutting at the Hunterdon Land Trust booth. In addition, there will be a free drawing to win a basket of market goodies. You can enter the drawing at the HLT booth.

Architect Chris Pickell and Adam Wengryn, owner of Restoration Technologies of New Jersey, will lead a tour and discuss the history of the building — portions of which once served as an ice house and residence — and the work done to restore the former wagon house for use as a rustic classroom while preserving its aesthetic as a farm outbuilding.

Also, Base Entertainment Group is donating a photo booth for our anniversary. Come get your picture taken for free starting around 10 a.m. in its booth which will feature an assortment of farm props.

Recipe

Paleo Breakfast Quiche

Prep time: 20 minutes; cook time: 60 minutes

paleo-breakfast-servingWhat You’ll Need:

1 large sweet potato, or 2 small sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon ghee, melted
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 small white onion
5 asparagus spears
2-3 cloves garlic
1 lemon
8 eggs

What To Do:

— Preheat oven to 400°F. Skin, then slice your sweet potatoes. We recommend a mandolin to make the job easier, but if you are cutting by hand just be sure each slice is the same thickness.

— Once you’re done slicing, toss with melted ghee and a sprinkle of sea salt.

— To prepare the crust, start the center of a pie pan and lay sweet potato slices in circles to form a crust. Note that the potatoes will shrink dramatically in the oven, so you want a lot of overlap between the slices. Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes and lower the over to 375°F.

— While the crust bakes, thinly slice onion. Zest lemon. Mince garlic. Break off white ends of asparagus and cut into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice onions. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and add onions, salt, and pepper. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until caramelized (7-8 minutes). Remove onions from pan, and in Remove onions from pan, and in the same pan add 1 tablespoon olive oil, asparagus, garlic, lemon zest, and salt. Cook, tossing frequently, until asparagus is softer and bright green (4-5 minutes). Toss with onions and set aside.

— Crack eggs into large bowl with salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth.

— Spread vegetables in even layer over sweet potato crust. Pour over eggs. Bake quiche at 375°F until eggs are set (30-40 minutes).
