We start harvesting Hon Tsai Tai Asian Green (flowering broccoli) this week! It is a Chinese specialty known as Kailaan.
Hepworth Farms, established 1818, is a seventh-generation family farm in Milton, New York. The farm is located on the Hudson River approximately 75 miles north of New York City. After graduating from Cornell University in 1982, farmer Amy Hepworth assumed leadership and began the process of dechemicalization, transitioning from standard farming practices to a "whole systems approach." Today, Hepworth Farms has 400 acres of NOFA-certified production land yielding more than 400 varieties of organic vegetables. They specialize in tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchini, cucumbers, and many varieties of greens. The farm is operated by Amy, her twin sister Gail Hepworth and Gerry Greco.
