SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JUN 5, 2020

"We are the first in the country, to plant and harvest the bamboo, according to OnlyMoso" says Janet Mixon.  Harvesting will happen every seven to 10 days, according to OnlyMoso representatives.  They harvested 100 pounds of bamboo this week to fulfill an order from a local restaurant—the bamboo is known to be rich in vitamins.  The next harvest on order will be around 250 pounds with an increase in orders week to week. Mixon Farms has hosted at least 250 farmers interested in the concept of planting bamboo on their property.  The large bamboo will be harvested in a couple years for clothing , flooring and diverse set of bamboo products. "Our first interest in growing bamboo was because of the health benefits," says Janet Mixon. "It goes along with the nutritional value of citrus."
