Find Our Produce

Farmstand:

For the 2017 season, the Collins Community Farmstand will be open May 20th to October 8th, every Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM.  In addition to our organic peaches, apricots, nectarines and figs, we are also excited to provide blackberries and organic vegetables from recent California Farm Academy grad,  Jason Cuff, at Hearty Fork Farm, as well as beautiful cut flowers from Katie Koch at Flower Mama Farm.  Also at the farm stand you will find local, farm fresh pies, jams, snacks and more!

We will be hosting several events at the Farmstand this summer – make sure to like us on Facebook, check the Events page on this website, or join our Events mailing list to receive updates and announcements on special Farmstand events!

Location:  8946 Olmo Lane, Davis, CA.   The farmstand is located just off the Kidwell exit off I-80, west of Davis and north of the highway.

Biking directions: Take Old Davis Rd. south from Davis, right on Tremont and then right on Spalding. Cross over the overpass and there we are!

U-pick: 

Our stone fruit will be available for U-pick only on select weekend dates. We don’t post the dates ahead of time, but we will announce upcoming weekend U-picks by posting on this website and our Facebook page, and will also send out an email announcement to our Events mailing list.  Follow us on Facebook or join our events mailing list to receive U-pick updates and event announcements, as well as updates on special Farmstand events!

Ugly Fruit Club: 

What is the Ugly Fruit Club?  

As an organic orchard that minimizes pesticide use and never sprays while there is fruit on the trees, some of our peaches, nectarines, and apricots will always suffer from nibbling worms, stinging stink bugs, and damage from other pests.  Because we pick our fruit ripe and juicy off the tree for the best flavor possible, the fruit can get bruised once in awhile.

We provide 10-12 lb boxes of this cosmetically damaged fruit at a reduced price for our Ugly Fruit Club to order, with a weekly pick-up in Davis or Winters.  Instead of the fruit going to the compost pile, we want it go to your freezer, canning jar, pie pan, or straight to your mouth!

How do I sign up?

No up-front payment is required, and there are no sign-up due dates.  Just click here to fill out a sign-up form and you will be added to the mailing list automatically.

*IMPORTANT:  We are trying something new this year – managing our Ugly Fruit Club mailing list with MailChimp!  This means that our messages might initially be sent to your Promotions folder instead of your Inbox.  Please keep your eye on your Promotions folder and change your settings so our Ugly Fruit emails will make it into your inbox.  You should receive an Ugly Fruit availability email every Monday starting May 22, then every Monday after that until August 21. *

How does it work?

The 2017 Ugly Fruit season is 14 weeks long, from May 24th to August 23rd. Every Monday, we will send out an availability email to let you know what varieties are available with an online order form included.  You pay week by week for what you order, and pick up your fruit at one of our pickup locations in Davis or Winters.

How much does it cost?  How do I pay for the fruit?

Being on the list is free and requires no commitment!  You just need to pay for what you order.  Each box of fruit is $12 (the boxes range from 9-13 pounds, depending on variety).  Once your order is processed, we will email you an invoice, and you can pay for the fruit with a credit or debit card by clicking a button right in the email.  If you prefer to pay via cash or check, we can arrange for that as well – just send us an email.  Even if you pay by cash or check, you will still receive invoices via email.

Where can I pick up my fruit?

We make deliveries weekly for pick-up at 5:30 pm on Wednesday evenings.  We have drop-off locations in west Davis, east Davis, downtown Davis, and downtown Winters (details provided in our weekly availability emails).

If there is enough interest and members signing up for a different location, we can also deliver to another location in Davis, Woodland, Winters or Sacramento. Please email us if you are interested in adding another location and offer a suggestion for where it might be!

CSA:

How do I sign up? 

To sign up for 2017, please email thecloverleaffarm@gmail.com by April 20.  In your email, indicate whether you would like to opt into to the flower CSA as well (either weekly or bi-weekly), as well as your preferred pickup location.

CSA shares will be provided preferentially to previous CSA members.  We will be capping the CSA at 50 members, and will be emailing our waiting list to fill vacancies starting on March 31st, so please sign up early to reserve your spot!

What’s in the CSA?  When does the season start? 

We offer a fruit-only CSA with peaches, strawberries, blackberries, nectarines, apricots, watermelons, cantaloupes, and figs. The 2017 Cloverleaf Fruit CSA will include 14 fruit boxes (about 10-14 lbs of fruit per week) from May 24th to August 23rd.  When you sign up for the Cloverleaf CSA, you also have the option of adding a weekly flower CSA of gorgeous organic arrangements by Katie Koch (Flower Mama Farm).  The flower share will run for 14 weeks from May 31st to September 6th.

Where will I pick up my weekly box?  

We make deliveries weekly for pick-up at 5:30 pm on Wednesday evenings.  We have drop-off locations in west Davis (2222 Muir Woods), east Davis (627 Lessley Pl), downtown Davis (3rd & C), and downtown Winters. If there is enough interest and members signing up for a different location, we can also deliver to another location in Davis, Woodland, Winters or Sacramento. Please email us if you are interested in adding another location and offer a suggestion for where it might be!

How much does it cost? 

For CSA payment, we are going to use the same system as last year – CSA by donation! We are asking that members donate on a sliding scale in order to receive their CSA share. A rough guide for how much to donate could be anywhere from $210-420.  The idea behind this system is that community members who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford the CSA  would still be able to join, while our members who can afford it and would like to lend more support to a growing farm operation in Davis can contribute more.  There is also a work-trade option if you’d like to come work in trade for your fruit. Email us if you would like to do that, and we can let you know the details.

The Flower Mama flower share is an additional $12/week and you can sign up to receive flowers weekly ($210 for 14 weeks), to be picked up with your Cloverleaf fruit CSA.  Payments for the flower CSA are not available on a sliding scale, and should be made separately from fruit CSA donations.

How can I pay? 

Payments are due May 1st.

We will accept PayPal or Venmo as well as checks this year, but prefer checks or Venmo as we receive 100% of the payment. Please make out checks to the Cloverleaf Farm and mail them to 627 Lessley Place, Davis CA 95616. For Venmo, you can send payments to Emma Torbert.

For PayPal payment, please click on the buttons below. You will be transferred to a secure PayPal site. We are collecting payment for our fruit CSA shares by donation, so please enter the donation amount for the fruit CSA where it says “Item Price” after clicking the first button. You can also separately choose to purchase a flower CSA share by clicking on the second button. The flower share is not available by donation so you will need to pay the set price ($210 for a weekly share).

Grocery Stores and Restaurants:

We are proud to sell our produce to several grocery stores, restaurants, specialty food processors, and online markets in the Davis/Sacramento/San Francisco region.  In 2016, our fruit was on the shelves at the Davis Food Co-op, Sacramento Natural Food Co-op, and Bi-Rite Market (San Francisco), included in preserves by June Taylor’s The Still Room (Berkeley) and Preserve (Winters), and available online through Good Eggs (Bay Area).  Our fruit was also regularly on the menu at Nido and Magpie (Sacramento).
