How Can I Get Your Peaches?
Depending on where you are, there are several ways to find our fruit! Our first variety is picked in late May and our last is picked in August.
Anywhere: follow Nikiko (@nmasumoto) on twitter, she tweets as many destinations as she can during the crazy days of summer harvest.
Adopt A Tree: One very intimate option is to apply to our Elberta Peach or LeGrand Nectarine Tree Adoption Program (applications open once a year in January). This is a small program and very competitive. We try to connect adoptive teams with their trees, the story of their food, and our farm.
In the Central Valley: In 2012, we started partnering with local restaurants. We organized a peach-pick-up at Dusty Buns Bistro to buy fresh fruit directly from us (we hope to continue this in the future). For more information on this, sign-up for our seasonal Peach Corps Newsletters and check back on our website and online shop for details in May / June / July. (Note: we typically sell a limited number of boxes, you pre-order/pre-pay and pick-up at a specific time and date at Dusty Buns Bistro in Fresno.)
In the Bay Area: We ship directly to Berkeley Bowl (Berkeley) and BiRite Market (San Francisco), two of our favorite places (follow Nikiko on twitter to learn of exact shipping dates @nmasumoto). Our peaches can also often be found at Chez Panisse (Berkeley) and Water Bar (SF). We have also shipped a lot of fruit to Whole Foods around the Bay Area. In the past our peaches have also been on the menu at the French Laundry (Napa).
Around the Country: We know that some food co-ops in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area support our farm every year and carry our peaches and nectarines. We’ve also heard that occasionally our fruit ends up in Whole Foods in NYC.
