WHY BUY LOCAL

Our customers prefer to buy locally produced products for a variety of different reasons. Many are concerned about the impact of transportation on the environment. Some like to support local farmers and in turn ensure that money is kept in the local community. Whilst others just like to know their tomatoes are fresh straight from the farm. Whatever the reason, we are glad you’ve chosen Vermillion Growers tomatoes!

WHY TOMATOES
FUN
HEALTH
LOVE

La Tomatina is a food fight festival held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Bunol near Valencia in Spain. Thousands upon thousands of people make their way from all corners of the world to fight in this 'World's Biggest Food Fight' where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

Tomatoes are known for their health benefits. They are high in antioxidants and have chemicals known to help fight some cancers. As well as being high in vitamins and low in both sugar and fat, tomatoes are good for your heart, kidneys, bones and skin. They can also help balance blood sugar levels. On top of all this, they taste great as well.

The French called the tomato the pomme d'amour, or The Love Apple, for they believed that the exotic tomato had aphrodisiac powers. Tomatoes might not be responsible for romance in people, but eating tomatoes does seem to spark a lust for more tomatoes. Finally, who can forget the meatballs in tomato sauce scene in Lady and the Tramp. True Love.

Tomatoes are the perfect ingredient for food with friends. Whether you need some healthy snacks on a picnic, or an easy to prepare meal for impromptu visitors, such as chilli con carne or spaghetti bolognaise, tomatoes are great. When you have people to stay, who will complain about a home made pizza or grilled tomatoes for breakfast?
