 Trees are busy making fruit for our next season.  It all seems to start with flowers.  Meanwhile, there is less to offer in the farm stand.  I call this time of year our Slow Season.  Please note that hours are reduced till the end of May.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday hours are the same as always.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday hours are reduced to 2 hours in the middle of the day 11:30 to 1:30.  Outside of these hours, you are welcome to call me at (916) 300-0720 to ask if I can meet you.  You will have to leave a message if your number is not already identified in my phone.  We are often at the farm somewhere, just not in the farm stand.

Fri, and Sat:       10:00  to  6:00

Sunday:      11:00 to 5:00

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

Hoshigaki:  These are whole dried persimmons.  They were hand massaged while they dried over a period of four to eight weeks.  Some are firm, others are soft and moist.  All are coated with naturally formed white persimmon sugar.  No sugar added and no preservatives used. We began peeling persimmons in October.  We peeled the last persimmons at the beginning of December. The hoshigaki is available in the farm stand. You may drop in for on farm pick up.  Contact us for large on-farm pick-up orders. (916) 791-1656 or email at otowochard@yahoo.com.
