Try to picture farmers from, say, 100 years ago visiting modern-day farms. They’d almost certainly be surprised at the number of urban farms – and at the notion of hydroponic farming where crops are grown without soil. They would already know about greenhouses but would likely be startled by how often they are used today.
If Farmer Lee Jones had it his way, he’d create a top 100 list of the best summer crops but we’ve convinced him to narrow it down to the top 10! Here are his final choices, products we’ve shipped to top chefs around the country and world – and are now available for home chefs, as well.
With hundreds of spring crops to choose from, it isn’t easy to pick just ten, but Farmer Lee Jones is up to the challenge! See if you agree. If you’ve got a favorite that’s not on the list, let’s talk. We’re always willing to make this a top 11 list!
“One of the biggest misconceptions about farming is that, when winter arrives, it’s all over until it’s time for spring peas.”
According to author and speaker Amy Jo Martin, “To feel empowered is to feel free and that's when people do their best work. You can't fake confidence or empowerment.”
We have been truly blessed with the opportunity to build some unbelievably special relationships with some of the most outstanding chefs in the world. In the midst of this hectic world, we wanted to stop and say thank you. You have given us the wind beneath our wings to survive and to do something amazing. Collectively, we have done something worthy and important. We are truly grateful for your friendship with each and every one of you. We thank you for your continued support and for allowing us to be part of your amazing teams.
