IT'S WINTER ON SATUR FARMS!
It was a fantastic season for our crops on Long Island. Now we're down on our Florida farm with our whole field team, growing our winter crops.
In Florida, we're harvesting our Mesclun, Baby Spinach, Wild Arugula, beautiful baby lettuce heads, kale, baby bunched beets, baby bok choi, mizuna, tat soi, red mustard. Our Frisee, which is well-blanched to a creamy yellow, has started and will continue all winter. The weather has been perfect and quality is excellent.
We're proud to be featured in the December issue of Hip4Kids, a terrific publication with the mission of changing the way younger people think about food. A digital issue of their publication can be seen by following this link: http://issuu.com/hip4kids/docs/hip4kids_magazine_final_-_december_/0
Satur Farms also 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/
