Pt. Mac stays busy during successful harvest season

Across Alaska, farmers are harvesting and showing of their beautiful and bountiful crops. At the Pt. MacKenzie Correctional Farm, a successful growing season means everyone stays busy.

So far, they’ve harvested:

πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎ1,500 pounds of green cabbage
πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎ1,000 pounds of Napa cabbage
πŸ™ƒ1,500 pounds of purple cabbage

πŸ₯’7,000 pounds of cucumbers
πŸ…900 pounds of tomatoes
πŸ…200 pounds of cherry tomatoes
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³3,000 pounds of zucchini squash

So, what do they do with all that? Well, some goes to our other facilities around the state, but much of it is donated to nonprofits who serve those in need.
