    i have never been able to understand why parsnips NEVER go down in price when they are in season as other vegetables doesn’t matter when youbuy,they always hover around the ^4kg/8$kg mark,and i love them anyway you want to do them,my hubby says they were used for a rotate crop and fed to pigs,while he thinks this way,even he can’t understand the prices.any farmer out there with a lot of parsnips on your hands,i am willing to pay a fair price,contact me!!!
