This lovely fresh broccoli is produced by Mt Whitestone Farms, Grantham Australia. Gary and Kathy Harm (the dedicated owners of Mt Whitestone Farms) ably assisted by our son, James, his wife, Ashleigh, and their children.
Mt Whitestone Farms believe that the passionate efforts put into the farm by our family makes our produce extra special.

Storing your amazing broccoli:
Refrigeration is essential. Keep broccoli in the bottom of your fridge. It is cooled super fast on the farm, and packed in ice to travel, which ensure's it's freshness. As with carrots it's a good idea to restrict the air flow around the broccoli. As it's basically a flower it even helps to pop the stem into a small container of water.
Broccoli is one of the few vegetables that freezes really well, providing you blanch it in boiling hot water for a couple of minutes first to deactivate its ripening enzymes first. Otherwise it will sit in your freezer for months, slowly and silently ripening, losing all of its rich colour, flavour and nutrients. Remember to have a bowl of ice-cold water standing by to dunk your broccoli into after blanching to stop the cooking process. Drain thoroughly, and then seal in an airtight freezer bag with the air squeezed out. It should last a full year.
