Strawberry grower releases children’s book

PLANT CITY – Wish Farms has released its first children’s book, “Misty the Garden Pixie,” which will help entertain kids while giving them useful information about farms and healthy eating.

The book was written by Therese Wishnatzki, wife of farm owner Gary Wishnatzki. “Misty the Garden Pixie,” was inspired by the birth of the couple’s first grandchild.

Wish Farms, based in Plant City, grows and markets strawberries and other produce around the nation. The company uses Misty, a winged fairy, in its logo.

The book, illustrated by Joey Donovan, is available for purchase for $4.95, plus tax, handling and shipping, on the Wish Farms website and at select Plant City stores.

“We’ve always been a family-focused business, and healthy eating is important to us,” Therese Wishnatzki said. “We hope this book will not only provide our younger consumers with a fun way to interact with the Wish Farms brand, but will also inspire kids to snack on fresh fruits, berries, and vegetables instead of some of the unhealthy alternatives.”
