frequently asked questions

Fruits and Vegetables are arguably the most nutritious foods you can eat.  When they are readily available they should compose at least half of our daily diets. 

What happens when they become scarce?  What happens if it’s winter and we have no garden to rely on?  Then we look to preserved versions. 

The very most nutritionally sound method of preserving fruits and vegetables is freeze drying. In this process foods are first flash-frozen; then the moisture is drawn out—leaving virtually 100% of the food's nutritional value intact. Freeze-dried fruits and vegetables last indefinitely when stored in airtight containers. They reconstitute almost immediately but are delicious to snack on even without rehydration. A great option—but pricier than the alternative below.

Dehydrating Fruits and Vegetables is a process that can be done at home with the correct equipment.  It’s not hard!  Dehydrated vegetables can store for very long amounts of time, but dehydrated fruit is not quite as shelf-stable.  We sell a wide variety of high-quality dehydrated fruits and vegetables.  Dehydrated fruit can be eaten as-is.  Dehydrated vegetables take some time to reconstitute, but the price tag is a little friendlier than the freeze-dried option.

This is one order where your presence at delivery is mandatory! I have NO freezer space to store these orders! :-) We are ordering individually frozen berries and fruits from Oregon. This order is only open three times per year—in the spring, summer and fall. Watch the website or subscribe to this thread for deadlines and updated pricing.

The fruits and berries are wonderful for smoothies, cobblers, pies, and much more. These come in a 14-lb box. They are individually frozen so it's easy to either pull out just a few at a time or repackage them into smaller freezer-storage baggies.

Also available is frozen jam, made with fresh, NOT COOKED, fruit! Fantastically delicious! These are available in cases of twelve 1-lb tubs. Or the gift pack has one 10-oz tub of each of the six flavors so you can try them and see what you like for the next order!
This company also offers a wide variety of Fresh (not farmed) seafood from off the Oregon Coast! Seafood is only available in the spring and fall.

The following is a copy of the information offered by the company:
