More Questions and Answers

Q:

I see that your strawberries and other produce are "conventionally grown." However it was explained to me during a visit a couple of years ago that the pesticides applied to the apples evaporate/dissipate over time so that very little remains on the fruit. Can the same be said of your strawberries? This is an important point for me because the pesticides on most conventionally grown strawberries make my face break out and I've had to switch to organic/naturally grown strawberries as a result.

Q:

What kind of pesticides or any cides for that matter do you use on your strawberries?? I know you use minimal amounts on your apples so I was wondering.

Q:

Ok, I see that you say you are not organic farmers. Are your strawberries genetically modified? What chemicals have your crops been exposed to?

Q:

I would like to purchase, but I am not 100% sure on the actual day we will go. Is it required that you purchase and come to the orchard on the exact day your groupon states (i.e. Sat, Sun, Weekday)?

Tasha  asked on  May 8, 2013

A:

Hi Tasha We will make exceptions, so if you purchase for Saturday and it can't make it, we will accept it for Sunday. Same as if it rains and you can't make it on the day you were planning on we will allow redemption for a different day! Thanks
