For a limited time, we will be offering a special Sauce Box for those folks who just can’t get enough tomatoes!
The tomato bounty is here. And it might be hard to believe, but that means it’s time to stock up for (ahh!) winter. Just imagine opening your freezer mid-February to find a bag of the juicy, vibrant tomatoes you put away six months earlier… I promise, you’ll be thanking yourself for storing a taste of that delicious summer sunshine.
The Sauce Box includes 10-12 lbs of our best sauce tomatoes (Speckled Roman, Early Girl and Brandywine), PLUS jalapenos and garlic to round out the sauce.
There will be a limited number of boxes sold, so please purchase early to make sure we don’t run out!
Wondering how to store the tomatoes? Don’t worry — we’ll send you all the info you need to learn how to can and freeze the bounty of the Sauce Box.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your box now!
We can’t wait to see what you cook up!
