Here we are. Under a week from our 3rd Peach Season in Nashville! We’re that nervous excited you get when you’ve prepared a long time for something and it’s finally here. We’ve done all the legwork we can, and now it’s time for harvest. We. Can. Not. Wait.
If you’ve been following along with our newsletters, blogs, and tweets, you know that we lost about 90% of our early peach crop. It’s one of the most challenging things for our farm to go through, short of losing an entire crop. When you lose that much of your product, you have to make some tough decisions.
In order to help with our costs increasing with this harvest, we have to raise the price of our bags of peaches here in Nashville. It’s not ideal, but it’s the position we’re in.
This season, we expect the price of our bags to remain consistent at $8, and 2 for $14. Yes, that’s just a dollar increase on our bags, but we felt like it was only right to fully disclose our reasoning for the bump.
We can’t wait to see all of you next week! Right now, we’re shooting for the 21st to be our first day selling. But I’ve never been right on a prediction before, so just keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook! Also, our schedule always stays up to date here.
Thank you for your understanding. We can’t wait to see all you peach lovers!
