our orchard blog
Now is a great time to get your 2014 fruit shares ordered. The trees look great going into winter and our state of the art frost protection system is on line. This coming season will be great. We've only got a limited number of Fruit Shares so to insure you get yours now is the time to place that order here.
This week we start installing the new frost protection system, we've got the first of two propane tanks set and all the piping and fitting have arrived. We will be renting a trencher tomorrow and will start the excavation for the pipe lines. Over a half mile of lines to put in for the 90 heaters we will be using. It feels good to be starting this project.
We will be at the Baker City Farmers Market again this week with some peaches, we are getting some every week now, not in the volume we would like to be getting but we're grateful for them none the less. We sell out quickly so get there early if your looking for our fruit.
We finished up the Indiegogo campaign on Saturday, it was a wonderful success we met our goal. Thank you all who contributed to it and passed the link on to your networks. Now we can get started on up grading our frost protection system, we're going to install propane heaters through out the orchard. These systems are used in orchards and vineyards all over the northwest we have high hopes of avoiding another major loss by using it.
We have to not except any more Fruit Share customers for this year. Because for the frost event we suffered our fruit is very limited this season. Please check back next year. Your support of our Indigogo campaign to raise money for an up dated frost protection system is needed go here Indigogo to learn more and help us out.
