Oxnard:  We made it!  This has been quite a roller coaster season here in Oxnard as we battled significant weather disruptions all season long.  We spent the last several months behind the normal production curve which allowed us to stay fresh all the way through May.  This is thanks to all of you and your support as we worked through the many challenges.  Our fruit as you can in the photos still looks great, tastes great and has good sizing.  However, overall volume throughout the state is finally catching up so we will begin the transition into processing here next week and shift our focus to Santa Maria.

Santa Maria:   Our volume here is increasing as we make our way into June next week.  Weather is still very mild here along the west side of town keeping our daily numbers on track and building into peak volume next month.  The plants are extremely healthy with fruit showing great flavor, firmness and full color.  Since we are on the west side of town, we expect a nice long season taking us all the way through summer into fall.  We also want to thank some of you for sending us these great photos of our berries on display.  It’s great to see the consumer view!
