In our ongoing quest to grow the freshest year-round local produce in Alberta, we wanted to let you know that 60,000 tomato plants have arrived at Big Marble Farms!
These include two specific varieties that will be available in local Sobeys and Safeway stores by early December 2016. (Keep your eyes peeled for the bright blue Big Marble Farms sticker!)
These are the Big Daddy of tomatoes. Still, our greenhouse-grown Beefsteaks are more delicate, flavourful and aromatic than the field-grown varieties you typically find in stores at this time of year.
Beefsteak Tomatoes are large enough to slice and place atop a jumbo Alberta Beef hamburger — giving you that unmistakable taste of a backyard summer barbecue.
Tomatoes on the Vine
Everything you’ve grown to love about vine-ripened tomatoes (bursting with juicy, luscious, goodness) you’ll be happy to find in Big Marble farm-fresh Tomatoes on the Vine. Each bundle of joy brings a little piece of our vibrant tomato plants to continue delivering nutrients right up until the moment you pluck, prepare and devour them. How delicious!
