When your fruits and vegetables are tasteless you know they are not that good for you. Ryker Brown, Sundance Resort Executive Chef buys locally grown farm-fresh fruits and vegetables from La Nay Ferme because they taste better. He adds that it is better for you too, ???¦?you can tell in the taste,???¦? and that taste tells you it is of quality.
A tomato is a fruit when it comes fresh from the farm it is a vegetable when it comes from the grocery store. You can have fruits and vegetables fresh from the farm to your table in as little as a few hours, picked the day you purchase them.
Compare that to a grocery store that ships them in from California (3-5 days) or Mexico (5-7 days) or Chile (7-10+ days) or somewhere even further away. When you are forced to purchase fruits and vegetables that have been ???¦?shipped in???¦? you are cheating your body of 50+% of the health benefits, nutrients and minerals, your body needs to stay healthy.
Sundance???¦??s Tree Room Executive Chef, Chris Park says, “This produce is the best we’ve ever had,” high praise from a passionate food connoisseur. With a smile, Park says, it???¦??s completely different,???¦? when comparing a store-bought tomato to a farm-fresh tomato.
???¦?The quality and the taste is bar none, the best we’ve ever had.???¦?
