The Tree Farm is Closed Today. We will open for vegetables again on Wednesday

For picking on Wednesday

Medium small to medium kohl-rabi is ready to pick. Just right for kohl-rabi connisseurs. Tender, sweet, flavorful and the "right size". Or, if you are adventurous, try one of the eight inch long monsters from the early planting. They look terrible, but are still tender, sweet and flavorful inside. Kohl-rabi
