Tanya Miller of Millican Produce is well-known in these parts for her amazing greenhouse operation (just 7 miles south of BCS) which brings ripe juicy tomatoes to the Brazos Valley between January and May.
But Millican Produce is more than tomatoes. The greenhouse is also home to English cucumbers, watermelons, and herbs; while out in the fields stand more than 3000 lettuce plants.
Join the Brazos Locavores on January 24 and experience the magic of ripe tomatoes in the middle of winter!
Here's the scoop:
- When: Sunday, January 24 (1:00 - 4:00)
- Where: Brazos Natural Foods (we'll be meeting in the parking lot and carpooling out to Millican Produce)
- RSVP: to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday January 20th (this allows us to prepare the farm for the number of visitors)
Everyone is welcome, the trip is completely free, and don't forget to bring the kids. These field trips are a wonderful opportunity to teach our little ones about where good food originates.
If you have any questions, just let me know. See you there!
