Fall at the Farm

Fall at the Farm

Ever wonder what goes on at a produce farm in October? You might assume that the crops are in and it’s time to lean back and sip some hard cider. For farms growing grain and soybeans, this might be true. For organic produce (and fruit) farms like Jade Family Farm, this is one of the busiest times of the year.

Sure celeriac’s ugly…but it’s also delicious

Never judge a book by its cover. And never judge a vegetable by its exterior.

A great example of this is celeriac. You may have seen it at the grocery store or farmers’ market. Its rough, brown, kind of hairy exterior causes a lot of people to scrunch up their face and move on.

But ignoring the celeriac based on looks means you are missing out on a delicious vegetable.
