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

     

    Market Day sales over; 

     

    Fall brings many joys – cooler days, blue skies and the hope that we will have a “normal” winter.  For Jackie and me it also brings the chance to enjoy our harvest season. Despite scorching days and an historic drought, the peaches, raspberries, blackberries, plums, pears and figs responded like hardy friends and offered a splendid season. 

    In the past few weeks Jackie has been preparing jams from that harvest.  Now we are ready to sell these seasonal treats on-line.  And, if you want to make a personal appointment, Jackie is available to sell perennials including iris.  As you probably know, autumn is the ideal time to plant perennials. 

    So let’s get down to details.  Among the jams we have the following: peach, strawberry, peach/apricot, fig plum, blackberry/peach, apricot, peach/strawberry, raspberry and blackberry.  Soon we will have fig jam as well.  We also have a limited supply of raw honey in 8 oz, 16 oz. and 32 oz. supplies.  The jams are all in 8 oz. jars and cost 7.00 each except for apricot which is 8.00.  The honey comes from Nevada County and has a price of one dollar per ounce. 

    The perennials range in price from 6.00 (gallon pots) to 25.00. 

    All orders will be processed within 24 hours.  Customers may use our “Good Neighbor” box at the farm with checks or cash.  Paypal is also an option for on-line payment (PayPal.me/mvfarm)

    Our address is 715 Cole Road, Meadow Vista. Contact: 530-269-9786 or ricko92@hotmail.com.

    In the meantime Jackie has finished distributing iris orders. Many thanks to these wonderful customers.  Due to the drought and the poor air quality, 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. 

    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.
