All fruit packing for online orders occurs on Tuesdays + Wednesdays, regardless of order date. We harvest M-Su so your fruit will still arrive to you in >48 hrs from coming off the branch.
We use home compostable thermal liners in each box. These thermal liners will dissolve in your sink under running water, and are made primarily of corn. Our boxes are made locally in WA state, and all recycled plastic clamshells are made from 70% pre-used plastic, fully recyclable and sourced from the US.
The plastic is necessary to protect the fruit, but we are working hard to find a better solution that is rigid enough to protect fragile varieties.
97% of our cherries go to retail markets like PCC, Central Co-Op, New Seasons Market, ect, and are packaged in home compostable bags. Thank you for your patience as we work towards becoming the most earth friendly fruit delivery option available.
Since our facility packages fruit that gets shipped all over the west coast, our safety standards are higher than that of retailers. Click here to see our current certifications.
