Boxcarr Farms Local in Motion

Posted by DID 20 Nov 2011 One Comment

We got to try out one of the new trucks around town during the Art Walk this weekend – Boxcarr Farms Local in Motion – the truck affiliated with the farm of the same name in Cedar Grove. The truck, like the farm, has an emphasis on sustainable, responsible, local, organic meats and produce.

The day we checked them out on the menu consisted of chili, a basket of fried shrimp and vegetables, three sandwiches and bread pudding. The sandwiches were egg salad, mozzarella, and a reuben with either farm-raised pork or tempeh. From Boxcarr’s twitter feed, it also looks like they’ve offered shrimp and grits, biscuits, prosciutto, french toast and smoked pork in recent weeks. I’m guessing their menu will change seasonally with what’s available on the farm.

We tried the egg salad sandwich and the mozzarella sandwich (broccoli rabe, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, mozzarella grilled on panini style). Both came on toasted bread. The egg salad was made with farm-fresh eggs, not too much mayonnaise and topped with pickled carrots and greens. Basically a gourmet grilled cheese, the mozzarella oozed with cheese, garlicky broccoli rabe, I’m guessing homemade sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. It tasted as good as it sounds, the salt of the pesto and bite of the sun-dried tomatoes balanced nicely with the creamy mozzarella.

It’s pretty incredible to be able to get fresh, locally-sourced eats directly from the farm out of a truck. Boxcarr Farms Local in Motion is a welcome addition to the Triangle’s ever growing fleet of food trucks. Keep up with them on twitter @boxcarrfarms to find out where they’re going to be. More information about the farm and their philosophies can be found on Boxcarr Farms site.
