Field of Greens

Earthbound Farms recently invited Plum Market’s Phil Cassise and Marc Jonna to California last month to help harvest some romaine lettuce.  


While they only pretended to bag romaine hearts (workers do this right in the field, below) they certainly enjoyed the scenery and were very impressed with Earthbound Farm’s organic farming methods.


The farming equipment used to harvest the spring mix triples as a mower, vacuum, and cooler to collect, sort, and keep the greens fresh just before pre-washing and packaging.  Who knew so much work went into that mixed greens salad you’re eating for lunch?
