Nothing in season at this time. Check back!
"My grandfather cleared our land and for two generations we were exclusively onion farmers. But the ground started to need new crops, so my brother, Ray, and I switched to greens in the late 1990s. Today we have over fifty varieties of vegetables and herbs," explains Gary Glowaczewski of R & G Produce.
When the brothers first began selling at farmers markets, they would arrive in their 1977 straight box truck with a couple of little tables in the back. Now, during the height of the growing season, they bring produce harvested by fifty workers on their 300-acre farm. Their business thrives due to one longstanding pledge: to listen to their customers.
"At the markets, we talk to a lot of different people from different cultures. People suggest new things -- I may not be able to pronounce it, but I'll track it down," says Gary. In 2012, R & G will debut cousa squash, in response to many requests from their Spanish-speaking community.
They are also working on an herb that is highly sought after by their Indian customers. As to its name? "I'm happy to get back to you on that," replies Gary.
