Ripple Farm Organics - Market Dates & Latest News
Sep / Oct News
We’ve had some lovely, sunny autumnal days, but the days are getting shorter so we’ve gone back to our 8am start time now (7am in the summer months). The veggies in the boxes reflect the changing seasons, the summer crops give way to leeks and cabbages, the courgettes and summer squash will come to an end soon, to be replaced by winter squash and the later season potato varieties give more variety in taste and texture. Our onion crop is almost all harvested now, we’ve made a good start on the winter squash and we actually need a bit of rain before we have a big day on the spud harvester.
Organic is different – you may have seen recent reports of new research showing significant differences in nutritional content between food grown organically and food grown conventionally, backing up what us organic farmers have known for a long time – how we farm can affect the quality of the food we produce.
