Beautiful crowns of our green broccoli varieties will soon be available at our farmstand, picked fresh first thing in the morning and ready for pickup when you get out of work.
We have two new varieties coming, "Green Magic" and "Marathon", both earthy, savory, and robust. Incredibly good for you too! Have a look below and see why you should be eating broccoli everyday.
Of all vegetables in the Brassica family broccoli has shown the highest levels of protection against prostate cancer. Broccoli comes in several varieties but the darker the color the more beneficial the nutrients the vegetable contains. It contains sulforaphane and indoles, which have strong anticancer benefits particularly against breast and colon cancer. Broccoli is also high in flavonoids, which have been linked with a significant reduction in ovarian cancer. The chemicals in broccoli protect against stomach ulcers, stomach and lung cancer, and possibly skin cancer. They also act as a detoxifier helping lower bad blood cholesterol, boosting the immune system, and protecting against cataracts.
