Hakurei Turnips

Eagle Road Farm

$0.97 $3.89

12 oz

This relatively new breed of turnip was created out of need in Japan in the 1950s during food shortages after WWII. Hakurei turnips are unique because they can be eaten raw and don’t need to be peeled. Sometimes referred to as a salad turnip, their delicate, crisp, slightly sweet and peppery flavor makes them a great substitute for radishes in salads. Roast in the oven; coat in sriracha; slice thinly and eat raw; steam.

Eagle Road Farm

Quarryville, PA

This small farm takes root in the fertile soil of Lancaster County, PA. Using Integrated Pest Management, Eagle Road Farm takes care to control the health of their produce by using primarily natural, biological means to eliminate pests from their farm. This is accomplished through various methods such as pest habitat manipulation, growing of resistant crops, and cultural/agricultural shifts that make the crops a naturally more inhospitable place for those pesky little critters while making the farmland richer overall. Pesticides are used rarely if ever and only applied if all other means of pest management have failed and there is a temporary, overwhelming outbreak. These exceptional treatments and materials are selected with the utmost care to ensure as minimal an effect as possible on human health, beneficial plants and organisms, and the environment.
