Week of July 14th

My dear community,

We’ve started harvesting our peaches in a big way. We do our best to pick them slightly underripe so they aren’t bruised during transport. Thank you for understanding this is a learning curve for all of us and our aim is to get you the best tasting produce whole and intact. With extremely hot temperatures in Buellton where most of our tree fruit is grown it can be difficult to get things just right. With that said – kindly notify us if something happened to your fruit to render it inedible upon receiving it. We are happy to replace the item(s) with something else available in a future box.

Be good to each other.
