Across Alaska, farmers are harvesting and showing of their beautiful and bountiful crops. At the Pt. MacKenzie Correctional Farm, a successful growing season means everyone stays busy.
So far, they’ve harvested:
🥦2,500 pounds of broccoli
👨🌾1,500 pounds of green cabbage
👩🌾1,000 pounds of Napa cabbage
🙃1,500 pounds of purple cabbage
👩🍳2,000 pounds of cauliflower
🍴1,200 pounds of celery
🥒7,000 pounds of cucumbers
🍅900 pounds of tomatoes
🍅200 pounds of cherry tomatoes
👨🍳3,000 pounds of zucchini squash
So, what do they do with all that? Well, some goes to our other facilities around the state, but much of it is donated to nonprofits who serve those in need.
