Asparagus ! fresh on the farm
Asparagus lovers, it is your time of the year! The asparagus is really coming on strong this year. So don’t miss out on enjoying fresh asparagus straight from the farm. By far most of the asparagus consumed in the US is grown in Peru. There is quite a difference in fresh asparagus and that which travels distance, not to mention how it is grown. Crops grown for shipping are often bred and harvested with a different set of priorities than that which is grown to be sold directly from the farm to consumers.
The asparagus crop usually lasts for about 8-10 weeks. This is ideal weather for asparagus and it is reflected in the quality. The warmer the weather the quality can suffer somewhat. So now and April is a great time to enjoy this unique veggie.
