  • (1888PressRelease) September 04, 2010 - Coral Springs, FL - The producers of The Art of Living with Marilu Henner are pleased to announce that Smith's Farm will be featured in an upcoming episode on Healthier Living - From the Farm to the Table, as part of the Healthy Living through Healthier Choices series.

    These days, many Americans are taking a proactive approach to living healthier lives. As a result, they're including lots of fresh produce in their diets. Broccoli, which is considered a super food, is a great choice. When eaten regularly, it is known to reduce the risk of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease. Broccoli contains twice the vitamin C of an orange, has almost as much calcium as whole milk, and it also contains selenium, a mineral that possesses both anti-cancer and anti-viral properties.

    Located in northern Maine, Smith's Farm is the largest supplier of broccoli east of the Mississippi River. The family owned and operated company harvests and ships nearly two million cases of broccoli each year, which amounts to more than all of the other east coast shippers combined, including Canada. The family's farming roots date back to the mid-1800s.

    "My Great-Great-Great Grandfather, Oliver Smith started farming in Mars Hill, Maine in 1859, says Tara Smith-Vighetti of Smith's Farm, Inc. "The fact that we are a family owned business that spans six generations is one of our greatest sources of corporate pride. This structure and company culture allows us to approach the marketplace not with just a product to sell, but with a heritage behind that product."

    GAP certified by the USDA, and routinely evaluated by third party auditors, such as Primus, Smith's Farm is committed to quality, safety and environmental sustainability.

    Filmed on location during harvest, the five-minute feature educates viewers on the benefits of fresh broccoli and gives them an up close look at operations at Smith's Farm. The segment also includes interviews with fifth and sixth generation members of the Smith family.
