Duplin Co seems to be a great spot to grow organically. Owen, a new grower for us this year, grew the beets you find in the O’Natural Box this week and his collards in the Locavore Box.
Kevin met Cliff in Harnett Co. this past week. This young man is going to be an amazing new grower for us! Just look at that Romaine he has grown. Did you get the Sprout Box this week? If so, you are benefiting from Cliff’s hard work.
Herbie, also in Duplin Co., grows a wide variety of organic items you will find in the Boxes. This week his beautiful organic radishes are the star item! You will find them in the O’Natural, Little O’Nat and Bounty Boxes. We also have his organic collards in the Lil O, and his arugula and kale in the O’Natural Box.
James, in Kenly, brings us lots of lettuce and all of our field strawberries this week! When he put his lettuce in the field in March he told us it would be ready about April 20. Guess what? His green leaf lettuce is in the Harvest Box this week and we put his Romaine in the Garden Box. I’d say he knows his stuff—even with the weather slowing the harvests.
Julie in Zebulon grows those amazing English cucumbers. Her operation uses recycled organic waste to produce energy to warm the greenhouse for the cucumbers. The cukes are wrapped to protect their thin, delicate skins.
You’ve “met” Dave down in Cumberland Co. before and you know we just love him! He brings us so many great types of produce—this week it is leeks, kale and spinach. His produce can be found in the Harvest, Garden, Locavore, Breakfast and Cinco de Mayo boxes this week.
