New Babé on the Farm

We are very excited to announce a new addition to the Babé Farms family: Hallie Nicole Estrada, granddaughter of our very own Ramona Chavez was born January 20th. Hallie is Nana Ramona's second grandchild (See grandson Benji pictured below with his baby sister) and she was gifted a very fitting new coffee mug. We look forward to when Hallie visits the office so we can introduce her to all kinds of new veggies!

Dry Weather to Come...

Despite being in the heart of the rainfall season, dry weather looks to continue into the second week of February. However, there may be a chance of rain developing by Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. With this warm weather pattern, we expect an increase in production and better quality on some items.

Dill With It...

Pickling is something we are already recognizing as a major Food Trend in 2018. Whether they're on a sandwich, salad, or veggie plate pickled vegetables are taking over menu's of fast casual and high end eateries alike. We thought we'd try our hand at pickling some Babé Fams veggies...how did we do?!
