Hello, everyone! It's great seeing you here again. We hope the past week was healthy and enjoyable for you, and look forward to seeing you at any of our locations.
We are now harvesting and a newcomer to our farm fields - Savoy Cabbage.
Beautiful, and providing a sweeter flavor than traditional green cabbage, a few of these spectacularly-gorgeous leaves under your main entrée will be eye-candy to those enjoying your meal. Cooked in just about any way, or eaten raw in slaws or on sandwiches, Savoy Cabbage is a wonderful addition to any meal. One head can provide a number of meals -- stuffed, Sautéed, combined with other greens or vegetables, boiled, roasted, grilled, steamed. With Beasley Farm's pesticide-free Savoy Cabbage, it's a great time to experiment!
We're still busy harvesting, planting, and more harvesting our pesticide-free cruciferous vegetables! Did you know the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services regularly makes "surprise" visits to our farm to test our soil and plants? We always pass with flying colors and tests reveal no trace pesticides. For more information about our farming techniques, and the testing we undergo, please click here.
Some cabbage facts:
This week we continue featuring our 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.
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!
Over on the JoyFul Abode website Emily creates a wonderful sautéed recipe using Chard, Onions, Walnuts, and more. Take a look!
Sunday - Rolo will be at the Towne Square Market Place in Spring Hill near Chili's on Hwy 19 from 8AM-3PM. If you would like any of the pesticide-free greens, please phone to reserve them, so that we know to bring them with him.
