Fresh Picked Home Grown fruit and vegetables are freshest. Unlike store produce, Fresh Picked Home Grown fruit and vegetables are picked at their peak ripeness each morning. The longest distance they have to travel is measured in a few yards or a few miles from neighboring farms to our Farm Markets, not miles across the country. When you see the FPHG symbol on signs for produce in our Farm Markets this means that they taste better than anything you can buy in the grocery store. Anyone who has plucked a ripe, sun-warmed tomato or crisp sweet corn and promptly eaten it while standing in their garden knows what a taste difference there really is. The freshest vegetables are also the most nutritious. They are picked ripe with their full complement of vitamins.
