We're no longer sending out hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmon) through mail order. This season's supply is getting low and the weather is warm enough that the sugar formed on the outside may melt in shipping. If you can visit the fruit stand, you can still pick some up or you can wait until October 2012 when we begin taking mail orders again. Our orchard is open through out the year growing other seasonal fruit and vegetables. Feel free to visit the farm stand or come take a walk in the orchard.
The Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club will deliver naturally raised local meat, eggs, honey and other local products to our orchard on March 16th. To make an order for the Meat Buyers Club, place your order online by Friday, March 9th at 5:00 PM.
We have a lot of citrus fruit and kiwi for sale at the fruit stand.
Here's what's at the fruit stand now:
- Mandarins--owari satsuma
- Navel Oranges
- Blood Oranges
- Lemons--Meyer and Eureka
- Placer County Real Food Cookbook--by Joanne Neft and Laura Kenny
