from the farm: Winter Crop Reflection

With each passing season, The Fig Farm continues to amaze us with its beauty and bounty! We love exploring all that nature and the farm have to offer us, and are always excited to see how Chef Jeremy will incorporate the produce of each season into his creations. So, as winter fades out and springs steps forward, we're taking a moment to reflect on all the goodness that came from the The Fig Farm this winter season.

Rainbow Chard

Farm Fact: Did you know that chard is a relative of the beet? Essentially, chard is a beet without the root.

Japanese Daikon

harvested January 15th, 2018

Farm Fact: Daikon is a type of winter radish. In Japanese food, many types of pickles are made from daikon.

Scarletbor Kale

harvested January 16th, 2018

Farm Fact: Scarletbor kale is on of the hardiest plants in our farm. As the winter temperatures get colder, the leaves of this plant turn from green to a deep and vibrant purple.

Chinese Cabbage

harvested January 16th, 2018

Farm Fact: Chinese cabbage is rich in Vitamin C and other nutrients, and absorbs the flavors of the foods around it.

Chioggia Beets

harvested January 20th, 2018

Farm Fact: When sliced, these beets display vibrant red and white circular stripes on the inside. These beets add beautiful color to soups and salads.

Rosemary

Farm Fact: Rosemary makes a wonderful garnish for winter cocktails, as well as a flavorful herb when dried and incorporated into food.

Borage Flowers

Farm Fact: Borage flowers are delicious when used in dishes. They also help to aid our local bees during the cold of the winter season.

Colorful Cauliflower

harvested February 11th, 2018

Farm Fact: From left to right these cauliflower varieties include the Vita Verde, Snow Crown, Graffiti, and Cheddar. The purple cauliflower gets its hue from the presence of the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is also commonly found in red cabbage and red wine. The presence of more beta carotene causes the orange cauliflower's hue, which has 25% more Vitamin A than your typical white cauliflower.

Thank you to @the_fig_farmer for capturing all these beautiful photos from our farm!
