Say hello to farmer John from Fresh Select. He's a brassica farmer and helps provide Coles with delicious fresh produce all year round!
Also known as the mustard family, members of the brassica family include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and even iceberg lettuce! John grows them in both open fields and greenhouses which protect the vegetables from the wind, rain, and pests!
Fun fact: instead of using harmful pesticides, we use good insects like wasps and beetles to eat the bad pests off the veggies!
