Veritable Vegetable recently partnered with Marian Farms to offer our retail customers a fun seasonal Thompson grape display contest.
Marian Farms is a 75-acre Demeter certified Biodynamic farm and distillery in Fresno, California. The farm is owned and operated by Gena Nonini, the third generation of her family to farm and steward the Marian Farms property. By farming Biodynamically, the farm creates a diversified, balanced ecosystem. These practices include maintaining living soil and adding vitality to crops by generating and integrating fertility through composting, cover cropping and crop rotation.
Gena partnered with VV early on to market her sweet grapes and delicious almonds to customers; today, Gena sells oranges, almonds, raisins and grapes exclusively through VV in the Bay Area.
We want to thank all the stores that participated, and it was really great to see all the beautiful displays that were built.
Congratulations to our winners!
Most Creative Display: Eureka Natural Foods in McKinleyville, California
Most Thompson Grapes Sold: Sacramento Natural Foods in Sacramento, California
We also want to give a shout out to the other stores that participated:
Grass Roots Natural Foods in South Lake Tahoe, California
New Moon Natural Foods in Truckee, California
Thank you again to everyone that participated!
