The Story of Your Food: Cabbages

Posted 4/22/2017 6:55pm by Dennis Skoworodko.

Cabbage is a member of the “Brassica” family of veggies or also known as “cruciferous” veggies. This family also includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts and turnips. Brassica family are known as very healthy veggies – very robust flavors and loaded with nutrients.   

 

The Brassica family of plants are subject to the some of the same pests that attack canola (as canola is also in the same family), and because we have so much canola being grown here, there are many, many pests. Because we believe in growing organically, we do not use insecticides to control pests. An example of a method we use to avoid chemicals is using a textile barrier to keep pests away from plants.  So we can offer you fresh local Brassica family veggies without chemical sprays, we use a “row cover” that keeps out pests but lets in light and water. It is a lot of extra effort, but an effective way to protect without chemicals.

 

We need to cover them right from the seedling stage until harvest..even a brief exposure without the cover, in our part of the world, will have the plants being eaten by the pests! So from these little baby seedlings, beautiful heads of tasty, healthy, organic and fresh cabbage will grow! Grown with love and care to be chemical free!



From our friends at Calories Restaurant: “This is a direct quote from Chef Remi: ‘This is possibly the best and most tender cabbage I have ever had. No wait, IT IS the best cabbage I ever had.’ Thank you for growing such delicious veggies.” And thank you to Calories for such kind comments!    

Regards, Our Farm Team
