The honey bees have returned from their annual vacation.  They spent most of March in almond orchards then moved on to citrus groves.  Now they are back with us and starting to collect nectar from wildflowers and persimmon blossoms.

        So much of farming hinges on the weather we get.  Every year is different. At last it is warm enough to put tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants in the ground.  The cucumber, okra, long bean, and squash seeds are starting to germinate. We see rows and rows of little green potential.
         Reminder: we are still on slow season hours through May 17:   Tu, Wed, Th 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.  Fri, Sat: 10 am to 6 pm. Sun:  10 am to 5 pm,  Closed on Mondays.  Regular season hours will start on May 18th, 2018.

Here's what we have in the farm stand from Otow Orchard:

Yellow grapefruit
Eureka lemons
Valencia oranges

Hoshigaki  (No longer available though Mail Order. )
Dehydrated  figs
Salve and Lip Balm

This is what we have from other producers:
Winter vegetables from Barley Oats Farm
Local honey  from Top O'The Hill Apiary in Granite Bay

Jams from The Good Stuff
Eggs from Two Feather Farm
