In the late spring of 2017, we planted 800 new plum trees to increase our Emerald Beaut production. The Emerald Beauts are a late-season plum that you will all enjoy in the CSA boxes soon. They are a lovely soft shade of green with a firm texture and a crisp almost crunchy mouthfeel. They are a sweet plum off the tree that continues to sweeten as they age. The Emerald Beaut is a favorite at our Farmers Markets, with our wholesale accounts, and with many CSA members.Read More

In the heat of summer with wagons full of peaches coming in from the orchard, it's hard to believe we are already thinking about our Warren Pear harvest, but we are. We are thankful that the harvest for 2018 is looking very good! In 2016 we had a record low harvest of our Warrens and we were more than nervous. The Warren Pear is our signature fall fruit and important to our financial health.
