IT'S SUMMER ON SATUR FARMS!
We love the rhythm of the seasons and the various produce that presents itself as the season advances. It's been a cold wet spring, so we've had some difficulty in keeping up with our rigorous seeding schedule. We need to seed each crop every 3-4 days in order to have baby leaf at the proper size for harvest. Quality is excellent, but hopefully, now that we're in late summer, the rains will become less frequent.
Satur Farms Baby Leaf remains the strength of our farming operation- Mesclun Spring Mix, our Wild Arugula, Baby Spinach, Mizuna, Tat Soi, Red Mustard, Baby Kales are all looking fantastic. We have a new addition to our Baby Leaf family- Hemp! Yes, it is Cannabis, but without the THC. It's high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, with a slight lemony taste. We're still in the experimental stage with our collaborators, but plan to pack it solo and also in a Hemp + Baby Kale mix. Butterheads, Frisée, Lollo Rosso, Curly Kale and Tuscan Kale are all being harvested through the Fall.
Satur Farms is proud to qualify for the New York State Grown & Certified program. Compliance with rigorous food safety standards and an elevated level of environmental stewardship are requirements for inclusion. All our greens are grown, washed, and packed by our team in NY!

We became involved with BPeace, an NPO with the mission of linking small business owners in poverty/violence-stricken countries with similar businesses in the USA, giving them knowledge and inspiration to expand their businesses, employ more people, and generate more revenues. We hosted a wonderful woman from Guatemala who grows and processes baby leaf, and quickly bonded with he and hope to visit her operation in return. We've also linked some of our restaurant and food colleagues to BPeace, who have mentored visitors. You can find out more about BPeace, The Business Council for Peace at: http://www.bpeace.org/
