Other Cooking Greens

Country Magic cooking greens are grown near Berwick Nova Scotia in peat soil that is well drained and high in organic matter. The microclimate in that area provides warm days and cool nights, perfect for crisp cooking greens.

We maintain uniform soil moisture for tender growth and maximum use of soil nutrients. Country Magic cooking greens are grown on raised plastic beds which allows for better drainage, better airflow and weed control. Here at Country Magic we continue to research and try different varieties of cooking greens to ensure that we are providing a high quality product that is nutritious and delicious for our customers.
Cooking greens should be stored at 1-4°C to maintain crisp freshness. They are ethylene sensitive so avoid storing with apples and tomatoes.

Health & Wellness

Country Magic cooking greens taste so good because of where they are grown. Our cooking greens are produced in a unique microclimate on a peat soil farm. The plants are often planted on raised plastic beds which provide improved drainage, better airflow and weed control. Consuming greens regularly is a fabulous way to boost health; generally speaking, the darker the greens, the more benefit you will get! All the greens contain high levels of the pigments β-carotene and lutein, powerful disease-fighting antioxidants. Lutein is beneficial to the eyes prevents macular degeneration and improving night vision.

In addition to our kale and Swiss chard products our cooking greens this year include collard greens, dandelion greens and kohlrabi. Both collards and kohlrabi belong to the cruciferous (brassica) vegetable family (the same family as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage).

The collards’ unique appearance features dark blue green leaves that are smooth in texture and relatively broad. Collard greens lack the frilled edges that are so distinctive to kale. Country Magic collard greens have a mild cabbage taste that is sweetest when the plant is harvested after the first frost. Collards have a taste similar to that of kale but milder. Collards are an excellent source of fibre and vitamin K, good source of folate, and a source of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and manganese.

Our kohlrabi has edible light green globes that form at the base of the stems above the ground. The whole vegetable can be eaten: leaves, stem and the globe. Kohlrabi can be eaten raw or cooked. The taste and texture of our Country Magic kohlrabi is similar to a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter. Kohlrabi is notably rich in vitamin C which helps body maintain healthy connective tissue, teeth, and gums.

Dandelion Greens belong to the sunflower family. They provide an excellent source of vitamins A and K, and fibre, good source of vitamins C and E. The list of source nutrients include potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin B6, manganese, folate, magnesium, copper, riboflavin and thiamin. It is known to increase good bacteria in the gut and boost immune system, and is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and bone health benefits!
