We all know that eating more vegetables and less junk is better for us. We all know that choosing an apple over potato chips is better for us. The dilemma is when we face the question of which apple. Can one apple be better for us than another? The answer is yes. Local produce has more nutrients than store bought produce. Nutrients in food depends on several factors and it begins from the time the seed is chosen. Let’s take a closer look at just 2 of these factors:

  • Variety: Most varieties of fruits and vegetables found in supermarkets today were chosen first and foremost for yield (how many pounds, pecks, bushels, etc. are harvested per acre), growth rate, and ability to withstand long-distance transport. Unfortunately, these traits which benefit national and international produce distribution often come at a cost: nutritional quality. (From study at Harvard)
  • Ripeness: Most produce harvested for commercial consumption is picked weeks before reaching ripeness. For example, a red tomato will be picked while still green so that is doesn’t have the chance to go bad before hitting the supermarket, or while it sits on the shelves. While it does ripen off the vine, the amount of nutrients such as Vitamin C are drastically lower than those allowed to ripen on the vine. According to Penn State food scientists, by eight days after being harvested, spinach for example has lost about half of its nutrient content. (reference)

Choosing to buy your food from a local Farmers’ Market has several advantages when looking at nutrients. Farmers growing for a local market are able to choose seeds for taste, nutrition and diversity over shipability. By creating greater crop diversity , the consumers gets greater nutritional diversity. By buying local we can be sure that produce is sold within 24 hours after harvest, at its peak freshness and ripeness. And finally, by minimizing transportation and processing the produce is likely handled by fewer people, decreasing potential for damage, and typically not harvested with industrial machinery to ensure freshness and flavor, and nutrient retention. An apple therefore is not just an apple. Buy local- buy seasonal- buy nutritious.

Delvin Farms

17 Jul

I didn’t even think it was possible, but low and behold Delvin Farms contacted us to be a part of the Woodbine Farmers’ Market. I tried to pretend that I wasn’t overjoyed with delight, but that didn’t last long. I felt like a delirious music fan all but hysterically crying saying, YES YES we would LOVE to have you. In my mind, your Farmers’ Market has arrived when you can boast that Delvin Farms attends your Market. They are 100% organic, they serve over 800 CSA’s a year, they farm 96 acres and they are a complete family operation. It gives me great pride to announce that Delvin Farms is our newest produce Farmer at the Market and you can meet them this Tuesday between 4 and 7pm.

Real Food Farms

21 May

How easily I forget that Nashville is surrounded by beautiful lush green rolling hills. On my drive out to Real Food Farms, I was reminded of my childhood that surrounded those hills and the innocence of living a simple country life. I drove up to the farm and was instantly struck by how calm and peaceful the land was. Next, I was able to get a tour of the carefully laid out 8 acres of cultivated land by the farmer, David Daily. David had recently injured his foot and was in a lot of pain, but happily walked around with me and showed me every crop that was being harvested, growing, planted or soon to be planted. It was just him and a younger woman, Linzi (who lives in Woodbine off McCall) who worked all 8 acres and they knew every inch by heart. As a friend told me recently, “David has a heart of gold” and I instantly picked up on that. I knew he could have probably been many things in his life with such a magnanimous personality, but he choose the tender, methodical and labor intensive job of bringing delicious, fresh food to his community. This was his passion, the earth. His mission is to grow flavorful and nutritious food with only natural and Biodynamic techniques grown free from pesticides, genetic engineering and chemical fertilizers. I am pleased to say that the produce of Real Food Farms will be sold at the Woodbine Farmers’ Market. Hooray!
