From Stacy’s Desk: California’s state vegetable
We’ve grown up knowing that the California state flower was the California poppy.
But did you know that there is a state fruit, vegetable, grain and nut?
According to an article in The Packer, a radio station held a contest to choose a state food. The finalists were artichokes, avocados, almonds, crab, sourdough bread, grapes and wine.
I know you’re just DYING to know. Who won? Who won??
Ocean Mist Farms, a family owned organization located in Castroville, California — “The Artichoke Capitol of the World” rallied their fans…and the fans came through. Our new state vegetable – the ARTICHOKE!
Morrison is proud to serve several clients representing both our state nut and state grain.
We’d like to give a congratulatory shout out to Sun Valley Rice and Lundberg Family Farms for representing the newly announced state grain - RICE; and another to Big Tree Organic Farms and Blue Diamond for the newly announced state nut – the ALMOND!
Hmm…I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling hungry now!
