Fresh Washington Cherries The Best Gift that Gives Twice

A mere gift certificate is just an electronic picture that sends best wishes. It often passes like a ship in the night.

Yet the meaning is there, along with all the care, when it's a Cherry Certificate from The Stennes Family Farm. A four generation farming family who passionately cares about all that they harvest. This passion comes through in their fruit, and especially when they are Rainier Cherries.

What amazing fruit, the sweet cherry is. With a crunch, a sweetness erupts along with flowing juices. With its wonderful sweet-tart flavor distinct unto itself, varied by the many varieties that there are. We offer these: the majestic multi-colored Rainier, the sweet Bing, the big juicy Lapin, and the sweet-tart Sweetheart. And new this last year, the Early Robin. Like the Rainier, it is sweet red and gold. Each and every one is Picked-at-their-Peak, sorted by hand in the orchard, and shipped directly to your door.

It's one of those gifts that our world gives us and it's one of the sweetest gifts you can give. A Cherry Certificate received now, as the winter temperatures turn cold, is a warm reminder of what gifts the summer harvest has to give. And, in just a few months, when the weather turns warm, the memory of such a wonderful gift is revived as the first of the cherries arrive!

Not only is it a gift that gives twice, it is lighter than air. No shipping charges here! It's our version of "buy now - pay later". Remember, we don't charge you until the week before harvest, late June to July, depending on the cherry variety. Give the gift that gives twice - Sweet Washington Cherries.

Order now - pay in June

Italian Panforte They're out of this world!

The fabulous California raised Reed Avocados. On Peter and Bonnie's Herman Ranch they raise avocados, a few chickens, a little garlic and perhaps a horse or two. Though, the Haas is the mainstay of California's Avocado crop, Herman Ranch has chosen to foster and grow the Reed alongside the Haas.

And we and the universe are benefitting from this. These are buttery, giant (think the size of a softball) fleshed avocados. But, it is not the size, impressive as it is, but the flavor, the feel, and the taste that makes them great. In fact, otherworldly.

Like a great cherry, or a new oil harvest, a great avocado, when found, is best to cherish and to enjoy the season: it is a time to look forward to every year. Give this gift now in the beginning of the winter to warm the recipient of how wonderful the summer will be.

Not only is it a gift that gives twice, it is lighter than air. No shipping charges here! It's our version of "buy now - pay later". Remember, we don't charge you until the week before harvest and ship - usually mid-August to mid-September.

Christmas Stollen
I love this Stollen! Shipping included.

Almost everyday we get a new shipment of this wonderful Stollen. The first slice reveals the marzipan core and the candied fruit. Toasting alone is a wonderful treat. Add butter and it could qualify as dinner.

Anyone who gets this should be pleased.

This is a garnish for roasted meats or birds, served with sauteed potatoes and a comforting red wine from a sunny place, a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, for example.
