Ocean Mist Farms grows a full line of premium, fresh vegetables year-round in multiple growing regions throughout California, Arizona and Mexico. Ocean Mist Farms' family farming roots took hold more than 90-years ago when Daniel Pieri and cousins Amerigo and Angelo Del Chiaros launched the California Artichoke & Vegetable Growers Corporation in 1924. Together, they leased land south of Castroville and soon Alfred Tottino, a local vegetable grower, joined the three men in their new business venture. Since then Ocean Mist has become predominant producer in The Organic Sector.
YUM - a definite favourite around here. This is a mixed sized bunch of asparagus!</br> </br> Asparagus is low in calories and is very low in sodium. It is a good source of vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc, and a very good source of dietary fibre, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, rutin, niacin, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese and selenium, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream into cells. The amino acid asparagine gets its name from asparagus, as the asparagus plant is relatively rich in this compound.
Artichoke can be a tricky one to figure out but the rewards are unparalleled, and these beautiful hearts are going to be amazing! </br> </br> A great source of protein, carbs, fibre, and potassium!
