  • Broccoli -  2 heads
  • Cherry Tomatoes - 2 pints (+)
  • Heirloom Tomatoes - 5+ lbs (32 tomatoes)
    • Black Krim - 6 tomatoes
    • Orange Brandywine - 4 tomatoes
    • Rainbow - 22 tomatoes
  • Regular Tomatoes - 1+ lbs (14 tomatoes)
Pickup will be in Elgin at 76 S. Union Street on Thursday between 4pm and 7pm.  If you want some then let us know.  Or just send an email saying 'dibs' on whatever as we got last week.

Peaches pricing:  $1.20 per lb.if you pre-order by the half-bushel or bushel.  There are 25 lbs per half bushel.  So, that's $30.00 per half bushel. 

I've compared these peaches and prices to Meijer, the Jewels, and even Kleins produce here in Elgin,  Only Klien's peaches compare because they get them straight from southern Illinois as well.  And at $1.20 we are charging the least.  Meijer was at $1.99/lb.  The Jewels was at $1.69/lb last check.  And, Kleins was at $1.39/lb.   I heard that Wal-mart was selling them for $0.70/lb.  I also heard they were grainy and small.  We are picking these up ourselves, next weekend, the 20th of August for pickup the 24th, 25th and 26th of August.  These will be fresh from the orchard in Alto Pass, Illinois.  They will be huge juicy peaches.  They are awesome.  We are writing back previous bushel and half-bushel requests this week to confirm.  If anyone else wants to place an order let us know before next Wednesday, the 18th.  We will be bringing back extra bushels as well to sell per lb but we do not know how much. These per lb peaches will be sold at $1.30/lb.
