Handcrafted Peach Tarts for Summer

posted on July 11th, 2018 by Lauren Pepin

What’s your favorite summer memory? One of mine is sitting around munching on summer fruit at the beach or by the pool. I love cold fruit on a hot day. Summertime brings about some of the best fruit of the year; cherries, berries, mango, grapes, kiwi, and peaches. Of all the fruits available this season, peaches have to be one of the sweetest treats. The range of flavor from tart to sweet with the varying colors never ceases to amaze me. Is there a more perfect fruit to represent summer? We have 4” and 8” seasonal fruit tarts available all year long, but this summer we are stoked to bring you our 8” Fresh Peach Tart that’s made with the sweetness of both yellow and white peaches layered in a beautiful design you will be proud to serve. We take a vanilla cream filled buttery tart shell and top it with alternating super sweet white and yellow peach slices. We then use a light glaze to help keep the peaches from turning. The tart is gorgeous and will decorate any… Read More

Meet Our Local Peach Growers: The Sawatzky Family

posted on June 27th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

May we just declare, our local California farmers are the absolute best? We know this because we've maintained loyal relationships with them over many, many years and have learned an incredible wealth of knowledge from every single one of them when it comes to their produce we carry in our stores. Today's farmer spotlight goes to Richard and Lavone Sawatzky - the amazing folks behind our seriously sweet and juicy peaches. Coming from a family of farmed grapes and raised chicken, Richard Sawatzky had never grown nor picked a fruit tree until he met his future wife Lavone, whose family farm of table and raisin grapes would flourish into a tree fruit farm. Growing up, Lavone spent many days working on her family's farm and thus, had great experience and passion for the hard work. During the early years though, her family field packed all of the fruit and her father would drive to LA to sell it, just to make ends meet. It wasn't until later years that they built a packing… Read More
