March 2016 Newsletter

Spring Is Here!

News From Around the Farm

We can not believe March is already here! 2016 is flying by so fast! Before we know it, it will be harvest time again. Sorry about getting this newsletter out a bit later than normal, the office has been passing around a really awful cold and everyone is just now getting back to being healthy. 
We've finished pruning our blueberries and are starting to tackle pruning on the black raspberries. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for pictures of how we take care of the black raspberries. (Coming later this month)

New Products In Our Shop

We have a few of new products up in our store, with more going up later this month. 
Our New Products:
Coming Soon:
Dried Aronia Berries
Dried Aronia Berry + Blueberry mix
Blog News: This month will be the first month we have our Farming 101 series (the name might change, we're still working on it!) where we cover a topic that we deal with everyday and a more in depth look at how we farm. We will post to our social medias when it goes live.
Other News: For months now we have been working on ourfrozen shipping prices and looking for a way to get them lower so we can ship at better rates for you guys. Well we are in the final steps of signing new shipping contracts and we are excited to be able to ship internationally at considerably better rates, as well as domestic. We will be rolling out new shipping prices in the coming months. During this time please be patient with our site while everything is updated and changed. You can always call us to place your order. 

Food For Thought

These are the articles we found over the last month and just had to share with you all. 
We will have Black Raspberries (and products) and  aronia berries (and more products) available to purchase after the Harvest of 2016. 

Cold Weather Shipping is Back!

We know a lot of you guys have been waiting for our cold weather shipping to come back. For those of you who are new to our site, every winter we are able to offer better shipping prices on our frozen berries. We are able to do this by shipping by ground rather than by 2-day air, which is standard in our store online. To take advantage of our ground shipping this winter, give us a call at 541-752-0460 (10 am to 4 pm, PST). 

Winter + Holiday Office Hours

Our Winter hours are Monday to Friday 10 am to 4 pm PST.
