Everyone keeps asking me if we are doing the pear order again this year - I'm excited to say we are! They come in roughly 27 - 29 pound boxes. They are $25 each, and Las Vegas delivery is scheduled for September 15th, set tentatively for 7pm at Mountain Crest Park. If you are interested in pears, but do not live in Las Vegas Valley, please email me for your delivery schedule. Get your moneys into me asap as I have to pay in advance for the order. I will take orders until September 11th, so HUSTLE, HUSTLE, HUSTLE! :)

Peaches Order!!

This year, we will be offering Leed's Elberta Peaches again (same farmer as last year). Elberta peaches won the title for the "best canning peach" because of their skins slipping right off after blanching(and it really is easy, I was amazed). They are a delicious, juicy "peachy" flavor, and generally speaking, they are BIG sized peaches. One 20 pound box is $25. I realize that this is a bit on the pricey side, but you do get what you pay for. A nice sized, juicy, peach! And remember that this family is using organic pesticides on their trees (and nothing is sprayed on any of their other produce). We love supporting farmers making great choices! Oh, delivery is tentatively set for August 25th at the Mountain Crest Park. If you live in a different area, but would still like to participate, please let me know as we are trying to set up pickup points for different areas, and will let you know if there is a closer pickup to you. If you would like to volunteer to be a pickup for your area, that would be great! I would love someone from Henderson, Summerlin, SW area, Southern Highlands, and maybe North Las Vegas. Email me for address to send payments to.

As most of you remember, last year, the O'Henry peaches were killed in a late frost. I have even more bad news - this year, the farm has decided to no longer sell peaches. We lost that contact. Herein lies our dilemma. We LOVE our O'Henry peaches. We searched out a new farm in California that sells them, and we found one. But, our order needs to be at least 200 boxes for us to be able to do it. So, if you are interested in these peaches, please let me know how many you will be buying, and we'll see if we can make the order - and SPREAD THE WORD. :) They will be $20 for a 20 pound box. O'Henry's are described as having a nectarine-like taste. But, I would describe them as being ULTRA-sweet, and delicious to eat fresh. I LOVE them! They work great in canning, but my favorite way to preserve them is to freeze them. You don't have to add any sugar, because they are already so sweet. Now they don't come in super big sizes like the Leeds peaches do, but they come in a mix of sizes from small to big. If we get enough interest in the O'Henrys, we'll place the order and get it going for around the first week in September.

Let me know which ones you are interested in.

Honey Order! (Peaches soon)

k, our honey order is on! We have spoken to our honey man, and we will be picking up the honey around the 1st week of September, unless our order is a smaller order, in which case it may be delivered later in the month of September. What we normally do is pickup the honey, and then bring it down with our next order (which will be peaches, most likely). So, we are collecting moneys now until the 1 of September (call me if you receive this info later than this date, and I'll see what I can do).

Now, this honey is from Wyoming, and it is deliciously light and sweet, and RAW. If it is not in solid form when you get it, it WILL solidify soon after. I recommend moving it into smaller containers unless you use honey all of the time, and do not mind it's solid state. For our family, I move it into the large-mouth pint jars because I like the small glass containers that you can heat up if you want (without heating ALL of it), and the straight necks allow you to take advantage of EVERY LAST YUMMY bit. :)

They come in 1 gallon, food-grade plastic buckets, and are $31 each. Let me know how much you'd like, and send your money as quickly as possible (email me for address)

Please pass this on to anyone that might be interested, as we'd like to get as big an order as possible, so we can be on the first shipment! :)

I'll be sending on info about peaches soon, so keep your eyes peeled! :)
