Strong Roots Healthy Farming Products
The Strong Roots availability list is a weekly produce listing of everything we have available. As the seasons change and Mother Nature evolves, so does our farm. If you are interested in buying produce on the list, please email or call us. We generally deliver on Fridays in Wichita between 10am – 2 pm.
Spinach $4.00 per 5 Ounce Bag
Although we do use it to grace our salad mix, the spinach is so good, we have no choice but to sell it by itself. It’s sweet flavor and crispy texture make it a favorite treat among our customers.
Toscano Kale Bundle $4.00
Kale is a member of the cabbage family and has a strong, pungent taste. Most people enjoy it in salads or use it for juicing, but we like it in black bean kale burritos or on pineapple, ham, and kale pizza! When paired with something that has a little fat in it (which releases the nutrients inside it) kale has 12 vitamins and minerals inside it.
Kohlrabi $4.00 per Bundle of Three
Kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family, and as such, comes with this family’s signature sweet-but-peppery flavor profile. We usually eat the bulbous bottom, but the entire kohlrabi plant is actually edible. Our kids line up for this exceptionally sweet morsel every time we harvest.
Rosemary $2.00 per Bundle
Rosemary leaves are used as a flavoring in foods, such as stuffing and roast lamb, pork, chicken, and turkey. Fresh or dried leaves are used in traditional Mediterranean cuisine. They have a bitter, astringent taste and a characteristic aroma which complements many cooked foods. Herbal tea can be made from the leaves. When roasted with meats or vegetables, the leaves impart a mustard-like aroma with an additional fragrance of charred wood that goes well with barbecued foods.
Turnips $3.00 per 1/2 Pound Bundle
Unlike other turnip varieties, hakurei do not need to be cooked. They have an even-textured density and the flavor pairs well with a variety of different food items. Eat them raw (just whole, or chopped/grated in salads), make a quick pickle, or cook with their greens to enhance their natural sweetness. White and red.
Radishes $2.00 per 1/2 Pound Bundle
Radishes are a root crop and are juicy, pungent, or sweet in taste. They can be white, red, purple or black, and in terms of shape, they can be long and cylindrical or round. They are eaten raw, cooked or pickled. French Breakfast, Red, pink, purple, white, black. Colors will rotate week to week.
Arugula $4.00 per 4 ounce bag
Although typically arugula is best in the Spring and Fall seasons, there are heat tolerant varieties that grow well in the heat. This peppery herb can be used to spice up and add flavor to just about any dish.
Salad Mix $4.00 per 5 ounce bag
A salad should be more than just iceberg lettuce and salad dressing. Strong Roots believes that a salad should be a whole meal. Our salad mix includes not just salanova lettuce but seasonal greens that could include mizuna, spinach, kale, tatsoi, arugula, red amaranth, microgreens, and even edible flowers.
Dried Stevia $6.00 per Sample Bag 2 ounces
Stevia is A wonderful sugar supplement. 30 to 150 times sweeter than sugar and has 0 calories.
Remember When $15.00 (2 oz bottle with dropper)
Remember When contains the powerful combination of ginkgo and gotu kola leaf, rosemary, peppermint, and ginger. The research behind gotu kola leaf suggests that it improves both learning and memory by increasing antioxidant levels in the blood. The extract from ginkgo leaves is used as a dietary supplement for many conditions, including dementia, eye problems, intermittent claudication (leg pain caused by narrowing arteries), tinnitus, and other health problems. Rosemary, on the other hand, reduces the oxidative damage to the brain with it’s powerful antioxidant activity. And let’s not forget ginger that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory property is important since many brain disorders including depression, anxiety, ADHD, brain fog, and Alzheimer’s are linked to chronic inflammation of the brain.
