Hakurei Turnips are sweet and delicious sliced raw in a salad. The first time I tried one was also the first year I started farming. Farmer Tom, from Blooming Glen Farm, pulled one from the ground and told me to try it. I was a bit hesitant, assuming all turnips should be cooked. The first bite flooded my senses and started my path on understanding what real food can taste like. Everything grown, harvested, and brought to market at Great Road Farm is done with care by myself and Farmer Sam. It is important to know who your food is planted and harvested by and to know that it involves a lot of labor. Come by McGolrick Park Farmers Market on Sunday and talk to your local farmers!
