The swimming pool also will be open, so bring your suit, hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses (if it is warm enough!), but even if it Rains, the barn will be open. We will have pop-up tents around and there is an upstairs to the barn also (billiards anyone?) !  The event is great fun, lawn games will be available, and the party sometimes goes until dark… so plan on making a day of it!

Group Buys for Harvest 2018

Spring is here and the growing season is well underway which means harvest is just around the corner. As you know, there is strength and buying power in numbers. If you don’t meet a growers minimum weight or you’d like to make a particular varietal but don’t have a source, Group Buys are a great way to go! We are actively looking for group leaders. Group leaders will be the point of contact (POC) for the group buy and the grower and be responsible for pricing and communication with the grower as it relates to payment, pick dates and other terms of the transaction. HW members David Ichikawa and Jerry Roark have volunteered to facilitate group buys. Contact David at deichikawa@gmail.com and Jerry at jerry.roark@gmail.com for Group Buy Information.
