Tillen Farms asparagus are grown and harvested during a short 6-8 week period in late spring. Because of the company's fanatical commitment to quality, the local farmers offer up their best products. Within hours of picking, these beauties have been sorted, cleaned, trimmed, blanched, and then carefully hand packed in a mild brine with a garlic clove to round out the flavor. The crispness is unique and the taste is exceptional. It's no surprise that asparagus is Tillen Farm's joint #1 selling variety (tied for #1 with their Hot & Spicy Beans).
