Babe Farms 68th Emmy Awards Menu

Babé Farms Goes Hollywood!

Recently, Babé Farms supplied root vegetables and other specialty items for the 68th Emmy's Governors Ball & Creative Arts Balls. Meticulous planning was required as Babé Farms worked closely with Executive Chefs Joachim Splichal and Gregg Wiele of Patina Catering (Pictured Below), ensuring that all quantity and quality specifications were met for this major Hollywood event. In total, Babé Farms provided Patina with 21,000 individual Beets (red, gold, and striped), 6,500 bulbs of Baby Petite Fennel, 8,000 heads of Baby Lollo Rossa Lettuce, and 2,700 pounds of Rainbow Carrots. We're proud that Babé Farms specialty vegetables contributed to the success of the the largest formal sit-down dinner in the U.S.

On this edition of Pet Talk we're featuring a trio of canines! This bunch belongs to Joe Sanchez. Joe is in charge of Quality Assurance at our processing facility, Fresh Venture Foods. Joe and his family keep busy with Luna (Lab), Lilly (Grey Cattle Dog), and 14 week old pup, Leo. The dogs love to play, go to the beach, and run around with Joe's three daughters. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pets with us, Joe!

Rocio and Alfredo walked him through the harvesting process of a variety of crops and Ernie was able to learn more about where his products are grown. Thanks for making the trip, Ernie!
