Apples and Pears and more!!


News from our Growers

APPLES-Organic-Pink Lady

Apples Are Back!!!
Yes, Certified organic apples. Firm with a crisp clean taste. Try some today, a fruit salad maybe.

PEARS-ORGANIC Bosc

Known as the aristocrat of pears, crisper and smoother than the d’Anjou or Williams. Bosc Pears have a more firm, dense flesh than other pear varieties, so they are ideal for use in baking, broiling or poaching. They retain their shape and texture better than other varieties, and their flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Of course, they are also excellent for fresh eating, particularly by those who prefer a more firm texture.

3 Rock Farm

Our Egg supply in 5 months. This chicken ,and a dozen or so of her friends, are just 4 weeks old and enjoying some warm afternoon sun for the first time.

Organic Baby Spinach
Among the World’s Healthiest vegetables, spinach comes out at the top of the list for nutrient richness. Rich in vitamins and minerals, it is also concentrated in health-promoting phytonutrients such as carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and flavonoids to provide you with powerful antioxidant protection. Enjoy baby spinach in your favorite salads or make a salad made exclusively of baby spinach.

Organic Baby Swiss Chard (Bright LIghts)
Swiss chard is not only one of the most popular vegetables along the Mediterranean but it is one of the most nutritious vegetables around and ranks second only to spinach in total nutrient-richness.

Organic Bok Choy Sprouts
Young and crispy, baby bok choy is in the cabbage family. Fresh and flavorful with a little spiciness.
Organic Collard Leaves
Young and delicious.
