Vine Ripened & Hydroponic Tomatoes
Did you know that the tomato was first seen growing stateside in South Carolina in 1710? Over the years they have made their way west & are still growing strong here in Oklahoma City at Cedar Spring Farms. We've just restocked and have red slicers available by both the pound or the case. That's 20lbs for $30! Its a great time of year to spend a little extra time in the kitchen restocking those preserved goods for a rainy day.
P.S. We've still got 2013 Keep it Local cards!
