The Falling Hearts remind us that Valentine's Day will soon upon us. It's a great time to encourage others, and show people they are thought of fondly.

This week our featured products are grown right here on the farm - CRUCIFEROUS vegetables! Not sure what they are? It's surprising how diverse this group is. We made a quick list with an easy-to-read, brief explanation of why CRUCIFEROUS veggies are vital to our well being. They are also very easy to integrate into our menus. To read all about Cruciferous Veggies and see our farm photos, just click here.
HINT: Beasley Farm grows lots of varieties of Cruciferous vegetables. They are grown Fall and Spring, and do well in the Winter if Mother Nature does not send hard freezes.
Currently being harvested on the farm: pesticide-free savoy cabbage, turnips, kale, collards, and swiss chard (all in the cruciferous family)
Big favor please! We are in desperate need of bags again! Thanks for always answering our plea to recycle your plastic bags with us! Thank you!
