A Santa Rosa Plum
The next delivery from the Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club to our orchard will be Friday, June 20th from 4:30-5:00.  Orders must be sent in by 5:00 PM Friday, June 13th.  Through the Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club you can order local grass-fed, hormone free beef, lamb, pork and chicken, as well as eggs, honey, olive oil, jams and mandarin products.  New this month are goat cheese, summer squash and cucumber.  Orders are made online and then you choose one of four locations to pick up your order.  Locations are Otow Orchard (in Granite Bay), Sinclair Family Farm (in Penryn), Smoky's (in Truckee) and Tahoe Wellness (in Kings Beach).
