Suyo Cucumbers are coming’ in hot, y’all!
It is very fitting that our most refreshing produce coincides with the hottest time of the year, and thank goodness. We are obsessed with our Suyo cucumbers (and you will be too, I promise!) It’s not only their impressive size, but their taste is oh so crisp and refreshing (and slightly sweet!)
Here is how our staff and friends like to use them.
Farmer Malone and her family had some much needed pool time this weekend accompanied by some refreshing snacks and drinks! Hummus, salad, and Micheladas all featuring our Suyos!
