Tasty and Healthy - February 28, 2013

Happy Last Day of February and Our best wishes for an enjoyable week...

We are readying the farm equipment and fields to change from our Winter crop season to the Spring plantings. To see which Winter Crops are currently being harvested on Beasley Farm, please see the highlighted areas below. For Kale or Swiss Chard, please phone the farm. We will cut it especially for you to keep it at its freshest.

Collards (shown below) belong to the Cruciferous Family. They are extremely healthful and versatile, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Please click here for information about Greens.

Because Greens are extremely perishable, we ask our customers to special order them if picking up at a satellite location. At the farm, we keep them in children's swimming pools of water.

Currently planted on the farm, but not yet ready for harvest:
  • More Kale in about a week
  • More Swiss Chard in about a week
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Beets
If interested in fresh-frozen SHELLED black-eye peas please phone the farm to place an order. Peas are in our standard two pound bag. $8 per bag.

As always, please feel free to phone the farm for special requests or special orders. We'll do everything we can to accommodate you. If you need something from the Farmers Market in Plant City, it is best to phone by Wednesday afternoon.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services visits to our farm regularly to test our soil and plants. For more information about our farming techniques, 
and the testing we undergo, please click here

A big thanks from Gran'ma Angie for recycling your shopping bags with us. Please keep them coming!

Quotes for this week:

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
- Buddha -

Smile at life, even when life has not smiled at you first.
Be the first one to initiate goodness, and you'll be the
first one to benefit from that goodness.
Ralph Marston

We can't say enough how much your encouragement and support mean. Without you, we wouldn't be able to do what we love most - FARM!

Looking forward to seeing you soon,
