Corona Virus Note:
Thank you for making local farmers a priority! Unfortunately, right now we are at max capacity for customer orders.
Our new customer registrations have almost quadrupled in the last two weeks and as a team of six, we are unable to fulfill all of these orders. We have started assigning our new sign ups to a wait list so that once we have re-calibrated our operations and hired the necessary employees, we can open up our registrations again. At this time, we do not have an estimated date of when we will be able to add new customers. We will send an email letting you know that you can begin ordering from us. Please register an account to be placed on the waitlist.
*If you are over 60 or immunocompromised, please say so in the Driver Notes during registration. You will be the first removed from our waiting list.*

Pears, Olympic Asian
Columbia Gorge Fruit Growers (WA)
Asian pears are ripe when harvested and are best eaten firm. As they ripen they get juicier but then start to dry out and become mealy. They can last up to a couple weeks (depending on ripeness). Keep away from leafy greens and other fruit you don't want to ripen as they produce ethelyne.
Pears are highest in fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and antioxidants. If you want to get the most out of your pear, enjoy it skin and all; pear skin provides nutrients and dietary fiber. Pears contain both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Both types are important for promoting digestive health and reducing cholesterol and blood pressure.
Though most often enjoyed fresh, Asian pears are also used as a common ingredient in Korean barbecue marinades. This is not only for their flavor and sweetness, but they also contain an enzyme called ‘calpain’ that tenderizes meat. Pear is a favorite to use in marinades because it is less likely to over-tenderize, turning your cut of meat to mush. This can happen when meat is marinaded for too long using more potentent tenderizers.
Of the more than 3,000 varieties of pears around the world, Asian pears are distinct by their floral flavor and crunchy, apple-like texture. They are ripe when picked, so no need to wait to enjoy!
