MCL Cafeteria Collaboration

Summer 2003

The Jennings County Growers’ Co-op invites chefs and distributors to visit the Farmers’ Market at the North Vernon City Park. MCL Corporate Chef, Ron Harris (left), explains the size, quality, and variety of salad greens he prefers.
Jerry Hendrix shows MCL chef Ron the early tomatoes in his new high tunnel. These tough plastic containers work best for higher volume buyers of mixed lettuce and other salad crops.
Several growers produce green onions. This early kale was grown under plastic without pesticides at Wullenwebers.
