OTHER FARM NEWS

TOMATOES

Due to the nature of growing tomatoes using sustainable practices, it is normal to see some cracks and spots on your tomatoes, especially the heirlooms. At B&B Farms, a “perfect tomato” tastes great, AND is raised with great care and consideration for the health of the workers and the environment.

Best peppers we’ve ever had!

EGGPLANT

Usually a heavy producer into the fall for us, eggplant this year is not holding well. The field has had heavy insect pressure lately. If your eggplant has a few spots on them, we recommend you use them relatively quick; they’re still good eggplants.

COMING SOON! Butternut & Buttercup Squash. New crop of Zucchini and Cucumber. Greens back next week - Arugula and Kale. Not far off, Green Beans… they make great school snacks for the kids! More fall favorites growing up… Cauliflower, Broccoli, Spinach, Lettuce, Fennel. Cooler weather is on the way!
