BakoSweet strives to cultivate their crops and maintain their land in the Bako region so that they can provide the best tasting produce for your family.
The San Joaquin Valley was a lake thousands of years ago, resulting in soil rich in essential nutrients for producing the sweetest produce in the nation. The region’s hot, arid climate and consistent temperature enables the growth of crops all year round.
They learned long ago that if you take good care of the soil, it will give back. Valpredo Farms maintains the vitality of the soil through scrupulous evaluation, testing and good farming practices. Over the three generations of farming, we have perfected a cultivation schedule that reinvigorates our land with necessary nutrients through crop rotation and deep tilling down to the aquifer.
These are usually the most mild of the onion varieties, so we like to use white onions in salads and on sandwiches. Basically, if you’re going to eat an onion raw, the white onion is what you want to reach for. And while they're pretty mild on their own, you can further tame their flame by slicing one thinly and giving it an hour-long soak in cold water—they'll be so sweet, you can practically eat them like a salad. (Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic, but the flavor will mellow dramatically, and you can probably eat a lot more of them.)</br></br>Onions are high in flavenoids and have strong anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and cancer fighting properties. Don't worry about onion breath, you're doing your body good!
