Off-Season on the Farm

an assortment of fruit in pails - summer

We welcome summer, after abundant rain, with renewed and refreshed orchards.

This year’s cherry crop is one of quality and quantity. After 5 years of challenging crops, this is the best in recent recollection. We look forward to an excellent supply until mid- June.

We are starting to pick our first peaches of the season from our over 65 varieties grown in our orchard, and the quality appears excellent at this time. We normally have a variety of white and yellow flesh peaches available each week. Pluots, plums and nectarines appear normal, as well. Apricots are our only disappointment this year as we estimate our crop to be about 25% of normal.

The planting of our vegetable crop including basil, heirloom tomatoes and squash, has been completed. All our fruit and vegetables are hand-picked daily - a fete which requires extra effort, but provides our customers the finest in quality and freshness we have to offer.

We continue to welcome your questions regarding growing organically. Although our fruit and vegetables cannot be sold under the “organic label”, we have been using integrated pest management since the mid 80’s and were one of the first growers in our area to use the bio-lures for mating disruption. We have been producing fruit and vegetables on our property continuously since 1947 in the least disruptive way that we feel is economically feasible, offering the safest and best tasting product for our customers.

As we begin our 75th season, we wish to thank you for your continued support and visiting us at
