Every year, we all have to deal with this weird transitional season.
The days are still pretty warm and Summery, but we can all feel these cool nights creeping in (the Farm received it's first MINOR frost last night, ugh.).
We do our best to keep bringing in unique specialty items that are still in season, and this is the first week where we've had a plethora of stunning items from both Summer's End and Fall's Inauguration, making for a truly remarkable selection.
The Western Slope is bringing us better and better items every week.
If you've yet to try the Honeycrisps from Berg Harvest out of Paonia (18.5 Brix!), you are really missing out. And of course, the Elephant Heart Plums from Plum Daisy are my top five items I look forward to every year. We are the only ones in Colorado to carry these.
I just took a bite of this Asian Pear from White Buffalo, and I had to stop writing so I could finish the whole thing. Just wow. We've waited two seasons for these to come back. When I first started...
These honeycrisps have a brix level of 18, making them the sweetest on the market.
They were grown on Berg Harvest Orchard, which is a family fruit farm located in Paonia. It's named for Paul Berg, who built his homestead on the property in the 1940's.
The Prune Plums are first to market. They're a dark blue in color with a yellow-green interior. the pit is easily removed, and flesh is low in water content yet high in sugar. They come out of White Buffalo Farm in Paonia.
Also from White Buffalo, what may be the last of the Cresthaven Peaches. The JH Hales arrive tonight!
We can't believe Nectarines are still out there, but we just received some local cases from Kokopelli. They are SUPER sweet and ready to use.
These cool nights mean sweet corn is winding down. We received a new lot from Tuxedo yesterday, so get some while you can!
