Beet Recipes

Beets are one of the few vegetables whose roots and tops are both consumed as food. There are several varieties that range in color from the familiar 'beet red' to yellow, white, and rainbow colored.

Beets may be pickled, juiced raw, and cooked and served hot with butter. Beets have the more sugar than any other vegetable. 'Sugar beets' are grown for the commercial production of sugar. Beets are a good source of folate, manganese, sodium, and potassium. They also provide vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus.
 

Like all our produce, our Beets are grown using sustainable methods: lots of organic compost.

I have no other wish than a close fusion with Nature and I desire no other fate than to have worked and lived in harmony with her laws.
