A few years ago we added a second packing plant to accommodate the expanding agricultural industry of the Central Valley.
GROWING THE PERFECT PEACH
Live Life Ripe means to live life to the fullest. For our fruit that means harvesting fruit at the perfect ripeness with peak flavor. Exceptional fruit happens at a moment’s notice, which requires constant personal evaluation and care. The perfect peach is only ripe on the tree for a 24 hour window. Harvested too early and flavor potential is not realized, too late and the fruit will not make it through the supply chain. By harvesting each field 6-8 times we capture that 24 hour window perfectly every day. Schedules and organizational charts cannot grow quality fruit. It takes growers committed to walking the fields every day to determine when our fruit has reached it’s fullest potential. Only then do we hand pick perfect fruit.
