Slideshows: Asparagus and Eggs

May 2, 2014

Did you know that asparagus continues to grow after it’s been picked, or that chickens naturally lay fewer eggs in the winter? Those are just a couple juicy tidbits from CUESA’s recent tour to Zuckerman’s Farm and Rolling Oaks Ranch.

At our first stop, fourth-generation farmer Roscoe Zuckerman gave us an up-close view of growing asparagus in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Then at Rolling Oaks Ranch, egg farmers Charlie and Elizabeth Sowell introduced us to their hens and showed us what “pasture-raised” really means. Take a virtual tour by clicking the images below.

Visit Zuckerman’s Farm at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and Rolling Oaks Ranch on Saturdays and Tuesdays.
