Celery

Celery is considered by chefs and home cooks alike as one of the “big four” staples when making stocks, sauces and countless other dishes.  Not only are the stalks and ribs edible, but celery leaves can also be used as an herb to add a rich flavor to any dish.

Growing &Harvest

Ocean Mist Farms celery is grown in rich soil in three different regions of California so that we can harvest field-fresh celery year-round.  We use drip irrigation to ensure consistency in color, girth, length and weight. Celery stalks and hearts are trimmed directly in the field and hand-packed into protective packaging. Watch the harvest video below to see exactly how this is done to ensure premium quality for your favorite recipes.
