    Spring season completed, farm closed, but on-line , jam/honey sales currently available

     

    Market Day sales over; hoping to reopen in the fall

     

    It goes without saying that these are not happy times at the farm.  The air quality is very poor and the drought has taken a toll on our water supply.  Thus we are not taking new orders for bouquet purchases and deliveries.  On a happier note, we are experiencing an abundant harvest of fruit.  Berries, grapes, peaches, plums, apples and pears are doing quite well.  Thus, we are busy making delicious jams and butters.  Hopefully, we can have a few market days in the early fall.

    Jackie and I would like to thank the wonderful visitors who made our spring season such a success.  Over 1,000 perennials and tomato/veggie plants were sold.  Additionally, customers bought most of the jam inventory. We look forward to more exchanges in the  spring.

    The greatest gift this year was the weekly exchange with folks who were planning their gardens and purchasing our bouquets, irises, perennials, jams and honey.  The events gave us the opportunity to renew past friendships and create new ones.  Many of you brought grandparents, small children and visitors from far away.  What a treat.

    Hopefully, we will be reopening in September/October  with a new batch of jams and butters from our fruit harvest as well  as honey, perennials and bouquets.  A lot will depend on the air quality and our water supply.

    In the meantime Jackie has finished distributing iris orders. Many thanks to these wonderful customers.  Due to the drought and the poor air qualilty, we are suspending bouquet orders throughout the summer.  

    Previously folks as far away as New Zealand have been ordering bouquets via email (ricko@hotmail.com and phone 530-269-9786 to be delivered in the Meadow Vista area. We look forward to renewing this service as soon as possible. 

    Currently we are preparing fresh batches of jams from our fruit harvest.  With over 45 fruit trees and many strawberry, raspberry and Black Satin blackberry plants, we expect a great supply of local fruit for our jams.  We will have Peach, Apricot, Raspberry, Blackberry, Fig and Grape jams.  Also we expect to have a good supply of Apple and Pear butters. Those jams and butters will be ready for sale this fall.

    Most of all we want to express our gratitude for the sense of rural community our customers have created.  They have shared their stories about gardening, creating a slower pace and becoming part of supportive village.  What a gift.
