Over the years, the company expanded to four full service restaurants located in Nashville, Franklin, Chattanooga along with a wholesale bakery. Frothy Monkey is neighborhood focused and their food and drinks are made from scratch using original recipes and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients from regional farmers and producers whenever possible.

How to Freeze Strawberries

Strawberry season is short, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these farm-fresh fruits all year long. Follow these steps to properly freeze strawberries!

You’ll need:
4-6 lbs fresh strawberries
Half baker sheets (fit best in most freezers)
Parchment paper
Paring knife

To freeze:
Gently wash berries under tap water. If berries are mushy or damaged, remove them.
Spread your berries out on a towel and allow them to air dry.
Using your paring knife, hull the berries by removing the stem and the bit underneath. You can also just slice the top of the berry off, but you get more of the fruit with hulling.
Line baker sheets with parchment paper and freeze the berries overnight.
When completely frozen, put berries in heavy duty freezer bags and label with the date.
Frozen strawberries will last up to one year.

The Ripe Time

The Ripe Time

Have you ever eaten a bitter carrot or a bland tomato? When a fruit or vegetable is harvested has a HUGE impact on its flavor. If root vegetables like carrots are picked too soon, they are often bitter as the sugars haven’t had a chance to develop to give it that lovely sweet flavor. Depending on if it’s a flower or a leaf, there are different harvesting times for herbs to ensure they pack the best punch taste-wise. The time of day can impact quality as well. Early morning is the best time to pick certain crops as it guarantees sweeter, crisper and juicier produce!

Here at the farm, we pick all of our produce at the perfect time to ensure the best quality fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers! Sign up for our CSA Farm Share Memberships or visit us at a farmer’s market to enjoy farm-fresh produce!
