    Rutabaga is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. Also called a Swedish Turnip or a "Swede", it is very high in iron, and easy to prepare.

    Significant Growth in Huron County

    Throughout the early 60's, an aggressive growth plan allowed us to acquire 2,800 acres of prime agricultural farm land in Huron County and expand our product offering to our current menu today.
