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 Tuesdays in Wichita between 10am – 2 pm.
Eggs per Dozen: $4.00
Eggs per Half Dozen: $2.00
Our girls are fed organic feed from a local farm and all of our leafy green crop residue when we turn over rows. They are rotated on grass and different beds through out the season. The eggs are collected daily!
Garlic Scapes $3.00 per bundle
Garlic scapes can be used just like garlic in recipes. They are very versatile. Try them in a sauté, roasted, pickled, added to soups, and more. The most tender tops of the stem and the buds are delicious chopped up raw.
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.
Mizuna Bundle $4.00
Possessing dark green serrated leaves, the taste of ‘mizuna’ has been described as a “piquant, mild peppery flavor…slightly spicy, but less so than arugula. It is also used in stir-fries, soups, and nabemono (Japanese hot pots).
Swiss Chard $4.00 per Bundle
Fresh chard can be used raw in salads, stirfrys, soups or omelets. The raw leaves can be used like a tortilla wrap. Chard leaves and stalks are typically boiled or sautéed; the bitterness fades with cooking.
Chives $2.00 per Bundle
Chives are a commonly used herb grown in most gardens. In culinary use, the green stalks (scapes) and the unopened, immature flower buds are diced and used as an ingredient for omelettes, fish, potatoes, soups, and many other dishes. The edible flowers can be used in salads. Chives have insect-repelling properties that can be used in gardens to control pests.
Green Onions $2.00 per Bundle
The crunchy, aromatic young onions we sell are perfect for adding a little extra flavor to your favorite soup, baked potato, or hamburger. And more importantly…they lower blood sugar levels.
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.
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.
White Radishes $3.00 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.
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.
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.
Bok Cho $4.00
Chinese cabbage. Chinese varieties do not form heads and have green leaf blades with lighter bulbous bottoms instead, forming a cluster reminiscent of mustard greens.
Beets $3.00 per Bundle of Three
The root vegetables are making a comeback! This tangy, earthy root vegetable is known to provide athletes longer endurance and stamina because it increases the nitrate levels and reduces oxygen requirements.
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.
