Terry Grewal, owner of Secrest Organics, started out working for Gene Covert on his 130+ acres farm as the farms manager. In 2014, Gene leased the ground cropping land to Terry and thus began Secrest Organics at Covert Farms. Secrest continues the Covert legacy of producing high quality fruits and vegetables in the Okanagan. Growing what seems to be anything that will flourish in their fertile soil. From everyday ground crops to seasonal specialties, there is not a dull week at Secrest Farms!
Deep orange fleshy squash that is perfect for baking with a little butter and brown sugar on top. </br> </br> Classified as a winter squash but technically in the same species as most summer squashes (i.e.: zucchini), Acorn Squash are named so for their shape. Typically a dark green rind gives way to a rich orange flesh that is characteristically creamy and very flavourful when baked. The seeds are also edible, especially when roasted.
