Coming Soon to a Market Near You...

We are busy planting shishito peppers and all different varieties of eggplant. We are planting them in tunnels in hopes of an early harvest this year. If all goes well, expect to start seeing them available in late May to early June! Check out the shishito pepper plant below:

Celebrate with Potatoes

Hey everyone.  Memorial Day is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with potatoes?  I personally love a good potato salad to mark the unofficial beggining of Summer.  I love potato salad and I have had quite a few in my time.  But check out this recipe; it has a southwestern twist:

I'm very sad to inform everyone that, despite the great efforts of our loyal customers to get us in the running, Weiser Family Farms was NOT chosen for one of Chase's Mission Main Street grants. Despite the disappointment of "losing", I am still glad for having gone through the process of qualifying. A little introspection, a little begging and pleading (okay, a lot of it), and a great amount of customer support made the contest a worthwhile exercise. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!

Congrats to the grant winners, selected from the over 35 thousand entries!
