If you love fruits like papayas, pineapples, and coconuts, you need to try them fresh from a local farm. Not only are local fruits fresher and more nutritious than their store-bought counterparts, but they also offer a sweeter and more delicious taste. If you have yet to experience this for yourself, here’s why you should head to a local farm.
What Are the Benefits of Enjoying Fruit Directly From the Farm?
It’s Picked at Peak Freshness
When food companies gather fresh produce to sell in stores, they need to pick it before it reaches its full maturity. If they wait too long, the fruit can spoil or bruise easily during the shipping or selling process. Since fruits reach their peak flavor once they’re fully mature, any fruit you buy from a store is going to be blander than something picked fresh from a farm that morning.
It Can Be Enjoyed Immediately
Store-bought fruits have to be shipped in refrigerated storage and processed by local markets before you can purchase them. When you visit a farm stand, you can sample your produce on the spot rather than waiting. In fact, companies often use preservatives and cold storage to keep these items from spoiling before they’re sold, which can diminish some of their sweetness. Without those preservatives, you get fruits that are completely natural and full of juice and flavor.
If you’re looking to try farm fresh fruit for yourself, visit the new stand at Tsue’s Farm in Haleiwa, HI. The outdoor recreational facility offers a wide array of activities that you can enjoy along the scenic Anahulu River, including kayaking, paddleboarding, and plate lunches. The fruit stand offers a variety of fresh produce and smoothies to enjoy. Book a family excursion online, or call (808) 744-5428 to speak with a team member about your visit.
