The cantaloupes are fresh from the field, picked today at the peak of freshness. There are big juicy delicious watermelons too! And Farmer Anderson sends word that the butter beans are now ready. It’s all waiting for you at Anderson’s Produce and Plant Farm on Highway 174 in south Red River Parish.
Farmer Jason Anderson said, “The strange weather we had this spring resulted in an abundant crop of veggies. We’re picking every day and adding fresh tomatoes, peas, pinto beans, squash, and all of your favorites to our store.” When Anderson says it is ready now, he emphasizes that the season only lasts a short time. “Now is the time to serve fresh vegetables. It is also the time to stock your freezer for the rest of the year” added Anderson.
The harvest is plentiful and the prices are great. Plus Andersons will shell the peas, pintos and butter beans for you. This service will save you a lot of time.
On Saturday, Anderson’s Produce will be at the farmers markets in Natchitoches and Shreveport. So see them there if that is more convenient for you. Their stand is open Monday through Saturday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Give Anderson’s a call at 318-932-1432. They’re located on Highway 174 half way between I-49 and LA 1.
