When life handed them tomatoes, and lots of them, Mark Palladino and Joanie Guglielino of Wild Carrot Farm in Canton decided they needed to find a way to preserve the bounty of organic produce they were growing.
First, the pair ventured into manufacturing Wild Carrot Farm Organic Tomato Sauce, which earned them a third place award in 2011 from the Connecticut Specialty Food Association.
Next they crafted their own Organic Salsa, which earned them a second place award in 2012, also from the Connecticut Specialty Food Association.
This year, Wild Carrot Farm is hoping for a first place award for Guglielino's heirloom tomato sauce.
For more information visit the Wild Carrot Farm website or visit the farm store at 541 Albany Turnpike in Canton.
