'Farm Fresh' is much more than just a superior tasting produce
Research continues to show that many essential nutrients in fresh produce may protect you from cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Fresh produce also gives you more energy, helps reduce weight gain, and may even reduce the effects of aging.
“Produce with superior taste is also richer in nutrients. All of our produce is harvested when it is ripe on the plant – and our corn is always sold from the stand the same day it is picked. We thoughtfully select all our seed, and the soils we farm are carefully maintained, allowing the proper balance of nitrogen, carbon, minerals, and beneficial microorganisms.
Food grown with our comprehensive soil management results in produce with more vitamins and minerals than grocery store purchased product. The longer produce sits, the more nutrients it loses. For all these reasons it is so worthwhile to purchase produce from a farm like ours.
At Palmer’s Farm we are able to produce unique and delicious crops because our season never really ends. As we close the stand we are busy caring for our soils all the way into winter to prepare them for the upcoming spring.
