  2. Five Flavorful Dishes for The Fourth of July

    Fourth of July, Independence Day, or the 4th is usually celebrated with fireworks, parades, and our favorites — barbecues! This year might look a little different, depending on where you are and your state’s regulations and laws for COVID-19. To help you celebrate this holiday, we have put together recipes that will be a big hit for you and those you are spending time with this year- during social distancing. 


    Dill Pickle Chopped Burger

    Let’s first start by sprucing up your burgers- make our Dill Pickle Chopped Burger! Add our new salad kit to add some extra flavor and crunch in each bite. If you are a big dill fan, add some pickles to your burger or serve on the side! 





    Tangerine Chopped Pasta Salad 

    Here is a fan favorite- Tangerine Chopped Pasta Salad you might even get the kiddos to eat too. This vibrant pasta salad offers a refreshing citrus taste with an extra crunch with our chopped salad included! Do not forget to add the toasted quinoa and the dried cranberries for extra flavor! 




    Asian Chopped Salad Grilled Teriyaki Kebabs

    Something about summer just makes these Grilled Teriyaki Kebabs PERFECT for a barbecue craving. Sweet Pineapple with grilled vegetables paired with our Asian chopped salad, or take the kebab apart and add as extra toppings- YUM! 




    Cauliflower “Potato” Salad

    Talk about a classic barbecue and picnic side dish, this Easy Cauliflower “Potato” Salad is a great spin-off from a traditional side. The same comforting taste as a normal potato salad, but with a nutritious vegetable instead of the potatoes!

  4. Iceberg Lettuce: Good For You and Your Wallet

    We really love it when others spread the word about the benefits of quality produce in a healthy diet – something the USDA highlighted recently in its new dietary guidelines.

    Most recently, entertainer John Tesh, who hosts a syndicated TV show and Web site called “Intelligence for Your Life,” talked about “surprisingly healthy foods that are also inexpensive.”  Here’s what he had to say:

    Iceberg Lettuce. It’s packed with fiber, iron and vitamin C. It also has bone-building vitamin K. Iceberg does everything from prevent dangerous plaque build-up in our arteries to boost digestion. Another benefit? Iceberg lettuce is one of the lowest calorie foods you can eat: one cup has roughly eight calories.

    We agree completely.  Taylor Farms is all about providing consumers with the freshest, highest quality produce available.

    Tesh’s show, co-hosted by wife and actress Connie Selleca, appears on 157 stations around the country.

  5. Our Investment in Clean Energy

    Mirrors Commitment to Safe, High Quality Produce

    Just this week, California Gov. Jerry Brown joined a group of 17 governors from both parties in signing the “Governors’ Accord for a New Energy Future,” a commitment to working together on clean energy advancements to protect natural resources and improve air quality.

    Taylor Farms is committed to using clean, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy to help power our food processing facilities because we know that one bag of salad won’t change the world, but how we make it might. Our commitment to a healthier environment goes hand in hand with our mission to make healthy fresh foods for our consumers.

    We’re proud to produce healthy foods powered by renewable energy.Our Investment in Clean Energy Image

    We invest in sustainable energy from the sun and wind and have installed fuel cells to generate cleaner electricity. These accomplishments, in addition to future sustainability projects, will help to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and provide certainty about our energy costs.

    Our retail processing facility in Salinas has 2,200 solar panels installed on the roof which generate 675 kilowatts of emission-free, environmentally beneficial electricity. We are proud of this and have been recognized by the White House as a national leader in sustainable energy.

    Our Investment in Clean Energy - Wind We also installed a large wind turbine at our Gonzales plant. The 350-foot turbine was one of the first in the Salinas Valley. The one megawatt of electricity it produces provides up to 50 percent of the power for the facility.

    We’ll continue to push forward and invest significant resources to produce healthy, high-quality food powered by renewable energy.
