If you live here in the central valley or you are planning to relocate here, you probably already know that our agricultural land is abounding. We have a Mediterranean climate – warm-hot summers and cool, dry winters which makes our mountains remarkable and our ag lands more productive than almost any on earth. Late spring and summer harvests bring some of our favorite seasonal fruits and veggies. Let’s get into what our local farmers will be harvesting soon and see where we can get in on the action to make some memorable experiences and come home with the literal fruits of your labor!
Right now, we are at the tail end of cherry season and our central valley growers are producing cherries that are distributed around the world. Did you know that California is the second largest cherry producing state, only behind Washington? Cherries are not only delicious, but they are also chock-full of good-for-you vitamins and minerals, making them a brilliant addition to a healthy diet.
Be sure not to let cherry season pass you by – get them while they are still here!
Genesis Organic Farms, right here in Hanford. You can give them a call and set up an appointment for some fun you-pick cherry opportunities. A bit further north, you can check out:
Blooms in Lodi – their season wraps this week… book a spot to get out there before it’s too late.
