Spring Veggie Orders

So many of us have been patiently waiting all winter long for the first bite of spring ~ well here it is!

It has been a beautiful spring out here at the Juniper Gardens Farm. So beautiful in fact, that we have plenty of fresh veggies for sale before our markets start! We are grateful for the Kansas City area's wonderful community of local businesses, like Nature's Own Market that support local & sustainable agriculture by buying our produce, but sometimes we have more available than these small businesses can buy.

We are going to try something a little different today, and if it works you can expect more in future seasons. Below is a list of items that we currently have growing happily in the field, ready for harvest.

Orders may be picked up at the Juniper Gardens Training farm any afternoon this week between 3-6pm. If this time does not work for you, let me know and we can work something out.

Baby Greens Salad Mix - $4/lb bag
Kholrabi - $3/large bunch
Broccoli - $3/lb
Arugula - $3/1/2 lb bag
Spinach - $5/1 lb bag
Asian Greens (bok choi & tat soi) - $2/head
Kale, Swiss Chard, Collard Greens - $3/bunch
Parsley - $2.50/bunch
Radishes (sweet spring baby radishes!) - $3/large bunch
Scallions - $1.50/bunch
Mustard Greens - $2/lb bag

A 15% discount will be given to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members.

So send Emily your wish list, she will respond with a confirmation and invoice and you can then stop by on your way home from work today, and be eating a deliciously fresh meal for dinner tonight!

Emily may be reached at 913.620.2080 or elecuyer (at) catholiccharitiesks .org


  1. Any way for affiliate farmers to offer veggies, too? I have broccoli and kale ready to go with no market for two weeks...

  2. Sure thing Warren, I should be around the farm most of the day tomorrow or give me a call & we'll try to figure something out!
