Ready and waiting for your arrival.

Once your order has been assembled, your sales team member will contact you in your preferred method (call, email or text) informing you that your order is ready for pick up.

They will also disclose any other pertinent details that might affect your order including: size changes, missing items, available varieties, or recommended substitutions.

Due to seasonality, market demand, or grower preferences, there are times when we might not be able to provide a specific item that you’re looking for.

If you don’t hear from us 2-3 days after placing the order, feel free to contact us and inquire about your order status. It’s the best way to keep up to date.
