Local Highlight- Organic Spring Mix
This week’s local highlight is fresh Spring Mix from Kenter Canyon Farms, located just 20 miles from Oxy.
While a traditional spring mix can be made up of arugula, lettuce, spinach, and chard, several other varieties of leafy vegetables are often substituted. Kenter Canyon Farms grows a variety of specialty greens which are combined to create
their spring mix. Their spring mix is also organic, so it is free of harmful chemicals! This incredibly healthy batch of greens contains high levels of vitamins A, C, K, and iron. Find it at the salad bar or the specialty salad station!
“Kenter Canyon Farms is a family farm located in Ventura County, growing lettuces, herbs, and specialty crops year-round in the fertile soil along the Santa Clara River. Our produce is harvested daily, washed and packed in our own certified facility, and distributed everyday to local customers which include farmers' markets, restaurants, hotels, produce purveyors, and retail stores. Our dedication is to quality and freshness and to growing produce that we ourselves wish to eat everyday. We are committed to sustainable agricultural practices and to our employees who sustain our farm year-round”. ~ Kenter Canyon Farm
