“Outside of the smell you get from the field, I mean it's beautiful and then when we go and plant a second crop behind them the ground breaks up real nice and it helps for the next crop," stated Mike Clements, Farm Manager of Top Flavor Farms.

Clements said like other winter vegetables, cilantro, and parsley help feed a majority of North America during the winter months.
