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). We were also featured on Dusty Buns’ menu and we also shared some with Parma Restaurant.
In the Bay Area: We ship directly to Berkeley Bowl (Berkeley), one of our favorite places. 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).
In Southern California: We work directly with some Restaurants in Southern California: Clementine Restaurant (Los Angeles) and our fruit also ends up in specialty markets.
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.
