About the Farm

Started in 1968 by his grandfather, Jon Brenckle now heads up this family farm. Working side by side with much of his family, Jon maintains the work ethic and quality the Brenckle’s name is known for while also keeping up with evolving food trends. In fact, learning what you want to eat and working year round to provide it is a passion for Jon and his family. It’s part of their heritage and what keeps things interesting on the farm.

“My favorite time on the farm is the spring. When we can finally get out and work the fields.” – Jon Brenckle, on his love of farming

HOW TO STORE: Cucumbers

How you store cucumbers greatly affects their taste and shelf-life. Here’s our tips for optimal storage:

  • Store cucumbers on the counter or the warmest part of your fridge. They are prone to chill damage when stored at cold temperatures.
  • Keep cucumbers separate from produce that release ethylene, like bananas and tomatoes.
