We are pleased to announce the winner of our annual First Peas to the Table Contest, Reed Cabot of West Tisbury.

Reed is 10 and a half years old and by far the youngest winner since our First Peas contest began in 2014 (when she was four).

That’s a cup, all right!

The original first-peas contest is older than all of us, of course: Thomas Jefferson and his farming neighbors had a similar competition in the 18th century.

We salute the reigning winner of our First Peas contest. Congratulations, Reed!
