A Word on Shipping (updated)
Since our write up in Relish Magazine, we have been inundated by web correspondence with folks hoping to get some of our freshness shipped out to them to all parts of our country. I've been trying to respond to everyone's emails, but I just wanted to get ahead of the rush.
At present, we are not set up to ship fruit. To some extent, we can work with folks who can meet us here at the farm. Going forward, after reading all the emails from folks around the US where apples are not grown, shipping is something we will have to discuss. In the offseason, we do a lot of work planning our next move - whether that be markets, new blocks of trees, etc. and I'd be willing to wager our family will have to take a hard look at the benefits of providing this service to folks.
So I just wanted to comment publicly that yes, we hear you! Shipping is going to be a consideration going forward!
My question to you is, what would you like shipped to you? Apples? Pears? Peaches? Gift baskets? What quantity would you like to order if you could? This is information we'll need to consider when we meet after apple season.
Thanks for everyone's interest in our farm - its been an exciting week!
I wanted to include the following resources that might be helpful in getting fruit shipped to you this year:
