Epicure Farms is family owned and operated and has become the industry leader in artichoke hearts. The Mediterranean Green Globe artichoke is grown in the fields of Castroville, California.
Specially trained artisans individually hand carve each artichoke heart into a variety of specialty cuts. There is no machinery or automation in this old world tradition.
We have transformed the artichokes into a sophisticated and elegant artichoke crown, stamping each one with our peak of freshness trademark.
Artichoke hearts are exceptionally sensitive to light, heat, and contamination and so our product is carefully handled to ensure it arrives at your table in great condition. *Please click on "Handling of Artichokes" tab for proper instructions upon receiving.
Our fresh-cut artichoke crowns are exactly what chefs and customers want in order to prepare gourmet meals without the taint of the traditional canned artichoke. Like fine wine, the artichoke heart is nectar to the palate. Its delicate taste welcomes a variety of culinary variations.
When you buy Epicure Farms artichoke crowns, you're buying the finest quality artichokes with all the components in place-hand trimmed, healthy and deliciously gourmet.
We at Epicure Farms hope you enjoy this special treat as much as we love bringing it to you!
