Alas, Wendy, The Dessert Table, has retired! She had a great 8 year run and is appreciative of all her many customers over those years. But now she has time for all her many craft projects, some of which will be displayed for sale in the Gift Shop in the Sales Building.
We take food safety very seriously! We wash our hands constantly when harvesting, sorting, cleaning, and packing our fruit, and making our jam (As a matter of fact, we sanitize our hands when planting our flower cuttings because of possible disease contamination!) We require visitors to our Pick-Your-Own facility to wash their hands before entering the area.
Please be aware that due to Federal Food Safety Guideline Rules for sanitation in public orchards, pets must be strictly prohibited from our flower displays and greenhouses, and especially where we are growing and producing fruit for consumption by the public. We do like animals as evidenced by memories of Ben's pet goats, but your safety is far more important. Thanks for your cooperation!
