It was my pleasure to be back on Indy Style this week.  This time I brought a good friend of Indy Fruit with me, Mike Kocher of Peaper Brothers Farm.  Peaper Brothers Produce has been farming turnips for over 100 years & as you may remember from a previous blog I LOVE TURNIPS!

Add turnips to your grocery list this week!  Let me know what you think… it’s not that people dislike turnips — it’s that most consumers have never tried turnips!  Don’t be so sheltered.
