Produce Update-March 25 2015

Randy: Mexican farm workers have gone on strike and thrown up barriers across highways in many areas of Northern Mexico including Baja.  These people are migrant labourers from the southern states of Oaxaca and Chiapas, who are consistently abused by large corporate Mexican farms, who bring them to the north for the winter growing season.  We have been there and seen it, and have purposely not bought from farm operations we identified as being poor employers.

Happy Spring! –  Although it has felt like it for most of what we used to call winter here on the west coast!  A few brave farmers have already brought us their very first greenhouse greens, earlier than usual, and with warm and dry drought conditions forecast on all the long term forecasts, we expect a very early start to local greens season.  We are nearly past the last possible frost dates across the Fraser Valley, so it doesn’t look like there will be any loss on the blueberry crop, which started to bud out ½ a month earlier than historical start dates.READ MORE

Produce Update-March 13 2015

Don’t expect good news today – its Friday the 13th after all.  Got to start the day reading an article in the LA Times. “California has about one year of water left.” The editorial goes on to say, “As our “wet” season draws to a close, it is clear that the paltry rain and snowfall have done almost nothing to alleviate epic drought conditions. January was the driest in California since record-keeping began in 1895.READ MORE
