Tasty Tomato Fest celebrates end of summer

Produce grower Deep Rooted, located in Westby, WI, held their 4th Annual Tasty Tomato Festival last Saturday, with the public having the opportunity to taste over 40 varieties of tomatoes.

Tiffany Cade and Jimmy Fackert, owners of Deep Rooted, are in their 6th season of growing tomatoes, all of which are grown in bags. “The reason we do that is because when we started in 2012, the greenhouses were all gravel.” Fackert said. The tomato plants are started at the end of January, moved to the greenhouse in March, and grown up to the beginning of November.
