Tomatoes, lettuce and carrots are genetically designed to grow tough so they can endure harsh machine harvesting and transportation, often 2,000 miles to the store shelves, where it on average sits for 4 days in plastic wrap waiting to ripen.
Because of this, the produce often tastes bland. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Most food sold in Kansas is trucked in from California and Florida.
At Marzenia Farm, near Sedgwick, Kansas, we select our seeds based on taste. If the seed has a history of tasting delicious, we plant it in our beautiful nutritious soil, water it and don’t harvest it until hours before we bring it to your home.
