*Delicious, fresh, natural, safe, and tasty fruit is our priority, and to that end, our orchard employs integrated pest management. IPM combines organic and conventional practices, including the careful use of properly timed and targeted agricultural chemicals. While we encourage washing any produce purchased at market, our fruit will have no harmful residues at harvest.
