The bright green or white bulbs of this immature fennel are long and thin in comparison to the much rounder, mature fennel bulbs, and have a sweeter, slightly more tender texture. Baby fennel also produces long green stems and feathery leaves that are also perfectly edible and delicious. Both the bulb and the leaves have a sweet, herbaceous licorice-like taste, similar to that of the more mature variety. Slice thin and use in salads or as a garnish for soups and stews; steam with lemon; bake with goat cheese.



Roots to River Farm

New Hope, PA

Female-owned and operated, founder Malaika Spencer fell in love with farming early on in life, and dedicated herself to learning how to restore overworked land and ecosystems while providing the most nutrient dense produce possible. Because of this, Roots to River Farm aims to transcend the economic, ecological and cultural devastation created by the industrial agriculture system by providing high quality certified organic produce directly to its local community. They believe that good farming is a public service, and want to provide a product that is of the highest quality, the most nutritious, beautiful and affordable while also offering a connection between consumers and the farm. In addition to being certified organic they utilize resilient agricultural techniques such as reduced-tillage, intensive cover cropping, integrated pest management, occultation, contour tillage, and organic compost applications to create a farm that provides the community with incredible food while also nurtures the soil and ecology of our farm and the people who work there.
