What's New in Produce for December?
It's December and we love the unique mix of organic and local produce that comes into the co-op as winter sets in. Currently we have delicious organic chestnuts for the holidays, plus plenty of local apples and pears, not to mention the first harvest of the season's rich choice of root vegetables.
J & B's Chestnut Farm in Iowa has had an excellent season this year and so we are fortunate to be able to offer you these tender, sweet, AND organic chestnuts.
