We caution that all produce should be cleaned before use. Since we grow on some fine West Michigan sand, there may be some dirt in your veggies. They are, after all, a raw agricultural product.

Suggestions for cleaning:  fill your sink to a depth greater than the volume of produce you wish to clean and agitate the veggies in question. Consider un-bunching things like cilantro, kale, chard or parsley. Chop leaf lettuces to desired size before soaking and agitating. Give spinach some extra time and agitation. Flat leaves do not give up their earthy origins easily.

If you don’t have one, invest in a quality salad spinner.  We have an OXO, purchased second hand for $3 that does the trick.  Storing veggies in the salad spinner is also suggested, when possible.
