So far, we are experiencing some pretty mild winter weather. As much as everyone loves those high temperature days, we don't really welcome them on the farm. Warm temperatures early in the season can trick the trees into thinking that spring is coming soon, and they will start to wake from their winter rest. We aren't ready for that because it makes for a risky spring if buds are open too soon. In 2019, we lost 75% of our peaches due to an early bud push and a late spring extreme cold snap/frost. We are hopeful that 2020 does not repeat that!
Ok, moving past the winter blues; we are busy inside right now! We have some exciting changes to unveil over the next few months inside and outside! To sustain a small business and small farm, we have to do our best to stay current with consumer trends and farming practices. Stay tuned; as these things unfold over the next few months, we will provide more details.
You're going to hear a common theme this year in our conversations, media and promotions. "Strong Roots" is the foundation of all we do. Strong roots of 65 years of a family owned and operated farm has brought us to this point. Even when we need to adapt, we don't lose sight that we have a history of providing the best possible experience for our community and stewarding our land and resources to the best of our ability. That ties in to every aspect of our life. We stand strong on that history and we move forward continuing to pursue the best for the future! Stay tuned, we have a great year ahead!
Getting ready to share another year with you,
