Fruit Leather Back in Stock!

We know you’re in withdrawal from the end of stone fruit season (we are too), so we’ve been hard at work packaging up our fruit leather. It’s now available in our online shop! This year we have both apricot and peach flavors available. You can order for local pickup or to have it shipped anywhere in the contiguous US–it’s a great way to share your love of northern CA’s amazing stone fruit with distant friends and family.

U-Pick Saturday August 13

It’s u-pick time again! Come get your fill of our late-season peaches: August Lady, O’Henry, and maybe Tra-Zee. It’ll be warm, so come prepared with a hat, sunscreen, and water.

Holiday Shopping!

Looking for gifts, or just a treat for yourself this holiday season? Come find us at the following markets in December:

Davis Farmers Market: We’ll be here every Saturday and (probably) at the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve markets. We’re located toward the north end of the market, near the carousel.

Davis Manor Winter Bazaar: Sunday Dec. 5, 11-2 at the street mural at the corner of Duke & M Streets. This annual neighborhood event is full of food, crafts, and live music. In addition to the farm stand, kitchen manager Jen will be there with her other endeavor, a fledgling fair trade import business. And crew member Morgan will be selling baked goods including scones made with Cloverleaf figs–yum!

Our Online Shop: If you want to spread some cheer further afield, you can order from our online shop and we’ll ship to any address in the continental US.

Looking for work? We’re hiring!

Cloverleaf is hiring a temporary (September- mid October) staff member to help us prune our apricots!  If it’s a good fit for you and us, you could come back in January to prune the rest of the orchard, thin in April, and/or work harvest in the summer (May-Sept). Experience in farming, especially orchard work and pruning, is great but not necessary. We want to hire someone reliable and hardworking who is excited about pruning trees and comfortable going up and down an 8 foot ladder and doing physical work. Cloverleaf is a 4-acre organic stone fruit orchard with nectarines, peaches, a few plums and figs, and apricots. We will be a crew of 3-5 and we may have you help with other miscellaneous tasks. You’ll need a car to get to work with the potential option to carpool from Sacramento or Davis areas. Pay is $15 an hour and work weeks will be about 30 hours a week (our schedule has been variable as we try not to work on very smoky days). Email your resume and a short explanation of your interest in the job to thecloverleaffarm@gmail.com 

If you can’t work right now but are interested in helping out with winter pruning and/or next year’s harvest, feel free to email us about that as well.

Apricot U-Pick July 3rd!

We have a bumper crop of Blenheim apricots this year, and we’re opening the orchard for a U-Pick on Saturday, July 3rd. We will be using a sign-up system again to help space out the crowds. Please register for a slot so we can be ready for you and your family or friends!

Come join us to pick Royal Blenheim apricots for $2.50/lb. Choose a 30 minute slot between 8am and 1pm and show up at the beginning of your slot for a picking tutorial so you can pick ripe delicious fruit. Bring water & whatever clothing and hat you need to be comfy in the hot weather.

This is a great opportunity to load up on apricots just in time for your Fourth of July celebrations. In pie, cobbler, ice cream, smoothies, fruit salad, on the grill, or just straight into your mouth, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful Blenheim apricot.

Attention all 2021 CSA members

Hi. We sent out our welcome email with the detail on the locations and times that we will be dropping of your boxes of fruit starting next Wednesday (6/9/21). If for any reason you did not receive the email, but have subscribed to the CSA, please contact us via email or at 503-902-8831. We are looking forward to the coming season of fruit, and want it to end up in your hands and mouths. Thanks. Tree Kilpatrick.

CSA sign-ups end June 1st

Hey there, if you are still considering our Community Supported Agriculture program to pick up a box of delicious mixed fruit once a week at one of our many drops (East Bay, Napa, Winters, Sacramento, Davis) please be advised that we are going to close sign-ups soon. The 1st of June we’ll stop signing people up and begin focusing on providing the best fruit for all our subscribers. So if you’ve put it off now is the time. We take Venmo, Pay Pal and check payments and it’s easy to sign up here on the website. https://thecloverleaffarm.com/join-our-csa/

Thanks.

Tree Kilpatrick (The Tree who farms trees).

The Fruit Is Coming

Hey folks,

We are about three weeks away from harvest. I wanted to let everybody know that we still have sign-ups open for the CSA and the Ugly Fruit club. Check the website for those things.

The Davis and Central Berkeley sites are full or nearly so, but there are locations through-out the East Bay, in Napa, in Winters and over in Sacramento with plenty of openings. The Ugly Fruit Club will be receiving an email about the new ordering process soon. We are not going to invoice that anymore. Ugly’s will be sold through the website. The Sacramento Sunday Farmers Market stand will start up in 3-4 weeks as well. We are going to be out in Arden with all the other vendors who used to be under the freeway. I’ve heard it’s a great market, so we hope to see some of you out there. Finally we will have a few U-picks this year, but those won’t begin until late June. As always you can buy our fruit at The Davis Food Co-op, The Sacramento Food Co-op and Bi-Rite in San Francisco. Thanks for the support. We are looking forward to the fruit and the harvest as much as you’all. Tree Kilpatrick.
