Employee Blueberries + Cherries
WA locals will be able to choose UPS ground shipping at checkout for roughly >$11.00 and receive their fruit box within 48 hrs of coming off the tree.
All orders are shipped Tuesdays + Wednesdays. Once harvest commences, we pick and pack all days of the week but Tuesdays + Wednesdays are reserved for online orders.
We set our shipping profile to make sure that no mistakes occur. This means that if you are located out of WA state (California for example), the only shipping options will be next day shipping.

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 with 2-3 ice packs to keep your fruit cool. 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 sourced from the US.
We currently use recycled plastic clamshells for blueberry orders which are recyclable. 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. We decided to use some leftover plastic bags for online orders this season since we already had them on hand. Thank you for your patience as we work towards becoming the most earth friendly fruit delivery option available.
By 2022, all cherries will be packaged in home compostable bags.
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.
