Dirty Girl Produce is a 40 acre certified organic family farm located in Santa Cruz County, Ca. Situated on rich, fertile land between the San Lorenzo River and sheltering Pogonip hills, the farm reaps the blessings of Monterey Bay climate and pristine watershed to produce sublime organic vegetables renowned for their flavor and vitality.
Dirty Girl grows over 20 varieties of fruits and vegetables, and one of our favorites is their Dry Farm Early Girl Tomatoes. Dirty Girl Dry Farm Tomatoes are grown sustainably using only rainwater from the torrential rains that saturate the soil in Northern California during the winter. The plants are deprived of water after they reach maturity. This lack of water stresses the plant forcing the roots deep into the soil in search of water and focuses its efforts on producing fruit. The result is a smaller tomato and lower yield, but the tomatoes have a tremendous flavor and texture.
Last year we introduced these beauties to our produce department, even though they are typically only sold to California’s Central Coast farmer’s markets. But because our guests seek the freshest and healthiest organic produce we were added to the list of retailers to carry these bright, juicy tomatoes.
The tomatoes will be here soon, but NOW (for a limited time), you can have access to these favorite tomatoes any time because they’re shipping them directly to our grocery department shelves! Use them in any recipe that calls for tomatoes—salsa, pasta, casserole, salad, or just eat them out of the jar! You’re welcome.
