      A few fruit are starting to get some color.  Our farm stand is starting to expand its display.  And it is time to move back to our regular hours. 

Tuesday through Saturday        10am to 6pm

                            Sunday           11am to 5pm

                            CLOSED  ON  MONDAYS

      Please take note: we will be closed on Saturday June 12 for a wedding reception.    Please plan around this date. 

      Robada apricots and Spring Rose white peaches are just giving us a tease. At this point we are picking them firm to avoid bird damage.  We suggest people leave them on the counter for a day or three before eating.

      Mulberries are slowing down and are usually only available by pre ordering.  

      WoodRose Country Garden keeps surprising us. We are now getting snow peas, Anaheim chilies, zucchini, spring onions, cabbage, basil, and amazing Greek oregano.

       A few people are busy processing and preparing our ume, Japanese sour plums. Although our ume sold out, I am continuing to sell ume produced on a local conventional farm.

       Hoshigaki, dried persimmons, are available in the farm stand.  On warm days you may need to ask for them.  We have to keep them in a cool place so they don't melt.  Hoshigaki is also available thru mail order.  Use the 2020 mail order form to get ordering information.


Tues. through Sat.      10:00  am to 6:00 pm           
          Sunday         11 am to 5 pm

Closed on Mondays

        Please take note: we will be closed on Saturday June 12 for a wedding reception.    Please plan around this date.  


  Here is what we have at the Farm Stand from Otow Orchard:
