I bought a bag of onions over the weekend and thought the name of the farm, Bland Farms, was a joke. After all, onions aren’t bland! I logged on to the webpage of the farms and, sure enough, it’s a family farm! On their webpage, the farm has a slickly produced video explaining their history and how they produce onions. It only has 150 views, which is criminal, given how interesting the content is. If you ever care how your food gets to your table (even if it’s a $2 bag of onions) this is the video for you.
