Variegato Castelfranco Radicchio (Organic)

Roots to River Farm

$6.99

1 head

Crunchy and with a delicate taste, Variegato Castelfranco is as beautiful as a flower and excellent to taste as an ingredient in many recipes. Tender enough to eat raw in salad, but also holds up well when cooked. Roast or grill wedges for a hearty side dish; pair with some Italian white beans. You can even add it to pasta.

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.
