Peach Update and Saturday reminder

First, please to be remembering that tomorrow, Saturday July 13, is the first "Help Farmer Trogg" day of the year.  It was great to have everyone out on Saturdays last year so we're going to do it again.  This week we will be at the Elgin farm from 9am to 1pm.  Both Dustin and Trogg will be out there trying to tackle the horrible weeds that this wonderful rain has brought us.  Please come on out and give us a hand.  Here's a link to a map where the farm is. 


Second, there have been some developments on the Peach front. We spoke to the growers over at Rendelman Orchards yesterday afternoon and they are delayed by about 2 weeks right now. Due to the slow start to summer, they do not have enough fruit right now to fill any orders. They expect things to start picking up and anticipate having enough fruit in about 2 weeks time, and they also expect that the season, which normally ends around the first or second week of August, will go later this summer.

What this means for us is that we have to put off the peach trip until they have fruit. As of right now, based on what the growers told us, we are planning to make the trip the week of July 29th and should have your peaches ready for pick up on July 30. We will keep you posted on our plans, which will need to be made around the orchard's growing schedule.

If you have ordered peaches, we have sent a confirmation email about your order.  If we do not hear from you we will assume you are okay with the shift in the schedule.  If the shift does not work for you, please reply to your confirmation.  Of course if you paid already we will refund you money also.

Also, if you have ordered peaches and have not received a confirmation email then we messed up somewhere.  So please let us know and we will fix it. 

We appreciate your patience. This is the world of farming - it can be fickle and unpredictable, but we all do our best. In the end, it's worth the wait.

Finally, because of the delay in getting peaches everyone has more time to order.  As of right now we have room for 10 more half bushels in the refrigerator trailer.
