Kalette "tops" are a big hit with veggie lovers since they are a cross between kale and brussel sprouts.
I encourage you to try these. You never know, they may end up being your favorite green!
- Sauté' with some olive oil and salt (Farmer Phil's preference)
- Stir fry
Last Thursday was a bittersweet day on the farm.
After 5 years of dedicated work, Matt is using his Environmental Science degree from BGSU at a new company. We celebrated Matt's last day at RPFarm with a cake and some laughs. He credits his long-time experience at the farm as the reason he landed this dream job of his.
CONGRATS MATT and we know you will do great things in life!
GO BIG OR GOURD HOME!
A HUGE 2,015 lb. Pumpkin grown by Farmer Phil's farming friend that he got to know while working at the Chef's Garden. We are hoping to score some of these "groundbreaking" seeds to see if we can grow a mini version of this BIG pumpkin here at the farm in the future!
Congratulations to Jim Ford on his AMAZING feat. This pumpkin is sure to be the "pick of the patch!"
We started selling produce the past two years to the Cincinnati school system.
Our farm team members and trucks are pretty busy and we weren't sure how to make this happen. Fortunately another farmer in our area was already delivering to them and offered to add a pallet or two on their weekly trucks.
We're pretty excited to know KIDS are eating fresh veggies.
The KIDS have already eaten up several loads of cherry/grape tomatoes, sweet corn and lunch box peppers.
We would love to see this here in Northwest Ohio since they already have a model to mimic!
