About Us
Begun by the Ewy family in 1912, sons Alex, Nicholas and Peter are the fifth generation to work this same productive farm in Parlier CA.
Fruit is hand-picked into individual (half-bushel) containers and never dumped into (or out of) large bins. This allows farmers to safely pack a much riper and higher quality piece of fruit than large packing sheds. The maturity at which stone fruit is picked determines its ultimate quality. "Pre-conditioning" will soften a piece of fruit, but will not increase the sugar content. All our fruit is harvested at 8 lbs flesh firmness or less. Their reputation has been built on this fact: our "tree-ripe" is not just another marketing slogan, there is a distinct difference!
