Corbin Hill Storage Tips
Our team wants to make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck at Farm Share, so we are sharing some of our favorite produce storage tips! Throwing all your produce into the fridge and hoping for the best is not the way to maximize your Farm Share. Using the following storage tips to keep your veggies fresh and reduce food waste!
Erica, our Strategic Growth and Operations Manager, removes the tops from her carrots in order to maintain a crisp and crunchy texture.
Dana, our Logistics and Procurement Coordinator, keeps her greens fresh by putting a moist paper towel in the produce bag. If she has bunched greens that are not in a bag, she wraps a paper towel around the bottom of the bunch to draw out moisture.
Carolina, our Farm Share Manager, likes to put her herbs in a glass jar of water and covers the top with plastic wrap.
Echo, our Communications Coordinator, keeps her potatoes and onions fresh for weeks by placing them in a cool, dark cabinet until she is ready to use them.
Xavier, our Office Intern, keeps his apples separate from his other produce because they release ethylene gas, which expedites the ripening process of everything around them.
