It's Tomato Time!
Ideas for Getting the Most Out of Our Summertime Harvest
While this season's weather has been a little challenging on our tomato crops, it is finally time. Time to break out your saucepans, canning supplies and tomato slicing knives, because our fields are producing some of the tastiest tomatoes you'll find all year. Whether you are looking for some unique HEIRLOOM VARIETIES to try in summer salads, San Marzanos to turn into a DELICIOUS SAUCE, or sweet, intense DRY FARMED EARLY GIRLS to savor on the spot, we have the tomato to meet your every culinary wish and desire.
Out in the fields, our tomato plants are currently heavy with delicious fruit ripening on every vine. The combo of climate, soil and sunshine is producing some top-quality tomatoes. This most recent heat wave translates to even more flavorful tomatoes, and as our field crews keep up with our quickly producing plants, you can expect to find lower prices at our farmers' market stands.
