Tourists visiting San Francisco from different parts of the United States (and world) know to make a pit stop at the famous Ferry Building Marketplace on Embarcadero to get a taste (literally) of the city’s vibrant food culture. And in between sipping on gourmet coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee and sampling cheese at Cowgirl Creamery, they experience (for some, the first time in their lives) the true taste of legendary, tree-ripened fruits in Shop # 46 that is home to Frog Hollow Farm to Table Café.
The fruit is grown in our thriving 143-acre farm in the primarily agrarian town of Brentwood that’s about an hour’s drive east of San Francisco. Tourists visiting the Café from all over the United States will often take home some fruit to share their mind-blowing fruit-eating experience with friends and family members.
Once you have tasted fruit that’s grown the way nature meant for it to be grown – carefully ripened on trees and picked when it’s just ready to eat – it’s not easy to resist the temptation to compare it with all other fruits. To make great-tasting fruit more accessible, at Frog Hollow Farm, we ship our tree-ripened stone fruit including certified organic apricots, cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots to customers across the United States.
This fruit may be ordered in individual boxes (when in-season) or you may sign up for our organic fruit clubs that will make sure you don’t miss out on any of the amazing varieties of fruit we grow in the orchard during Spring & Summer. So why sign up for an organic fruit club? Here are our top five reasons:
- Never Run Out of a Healthy Snack
When you sign up for a fruit club, you will always have the convenience of grabbing a piece of great-tasting fruit to snack on versus reaching out for other, less-healthy packaged alternatives. Select a fruit club that works best for you and be sure to have a healthy snack option available at all times.
- Investment in Good Health
Organic fruits clubs are an investment in your own health; much like the investments you make when you join a gymnasium and hire the best personal trainer to support your fitness objectives and long-term health goals.
- Delivered to Your Doorstep
Organic fruit delivery clubs are especially convenient because they support your active lifestyle and busy work schedule. At Frog Hollow Farm, we take the worry out of fruit shopping at a grocery store because we hand-pick all our fruit and after careful inspection and send you only the best pieces of fruit coming in from the orchard.
- Better Tasting Fruit Than Your Local Grocery Store
When it comes to taste, there’s no comparing the fruit that you may find at your local grocery store with fruit that is grown sustainably. We know that great tasting fruit can only come from soil that has been well-fed and cared for! With that objective in mind, we nourish our soil with compost that’s made on-site at the farm under the careful supervision of our in-house soil scientist. Each piece of fruit is hand-selected by a member of our expert picking crew that is trained to identify fruit at its optimal ripeness. After picking, each piece is re-examined by our packing team and only fruit that is ripe enough to have great flavor and withstand shipping is sent to our mail order customers.
- Support A Farm
When you sign up for an organic fruit delivery club from a farm, you invest in an organic farmer and support the values of sustainability. You know where your food comes from and how it is grown.
