Broccoli is most kids’ least favorite vegetable. Not Northern Girl’s. In our experience Aroostook’s cool summers and early frosts produce extraordinary broccoli – a broccoli worth keeping in the freezer.
Northern Girl believes that Aroostook is the ‘sleeping giant’ of New England agriculture. With thousands of acres of affordable and arable farmland, Aroostook is one of the few counties in New England that could actually support the large scale production of local food. Broccoli is one crop worth talking about. It’s not all coincidence that the region is called the ‘Crown’ of Maine.
