After everything has been harvested in the field, we wash the produce before we bring
it to market or CSA distribution. During harvest we store all the bulks in bins according to their size. Upon finishing this we load up the truck and drive it back to the wash station. We begin washing the process by soaking the produce in cold water.
Once this is finished, we sort out anything that doesn't look up to marketing standards. Organically grown food can often times come in funky shapes and sizes and have minor bite marks from pests. We try our best to be non-discriminate but
the public can be hard to please. Although, luckily for us workers, any rejected produce is ours to take home. I left the farm with fresh strawberries almost every day in June. For July and August I was blessed with a surplus leafy greens, squash varieties,
eggplants, cucumbers, onions, and even a few cantaloupe melons.
