Once harvested, plant food begins to break down, losing nutrients. The longer it sits in transport, the less nutrient support it will offer your body. For example, a head of romaine has lost half its nutrient density within three days from the time it was picked.
Why Farm Sourced?
Our taste buds notify us of a vegetable’s nutrient density or freshness. As the plant loses its nutrients, it loses its flavor. The average transport from the farm to the store in the U.S. is a week. By this time, the vegetable has lost much of its nutrient value. Sadly, most people have never tasted a truly fresh vegetable and don’t even know what it should taste like. Order a box or join us for a farm tour and taste the difference for yourself.
