Broccoli

Yes, they’re little trees, but to us they’re old friends. That's because Smith’s Farm is the largest broccoli grower on the east coast, and has been for some time. Since we grow, harvest and deliver our Broccoli ourselves -year in, year out- we can truly say that when you grab a head of Smith’s Farm Broccoli at the store, it’ll be fresh and delicious.
