Local Highlight- Spinach
The spinach served at the Marketplace Salad Bar and the Specialty Salad Station is always 100% organic and frequently comes from farms within 200 miles of Oxy!
This week’s local highlight is spinach from Kenter Canyon Farms.
Kenter Canyon Farms is located in Ventura, CA so this spinach only has to travel 60 miles to get to Oxy. This spinach is organic so it is better for your health and the environment.
