Beans - Summer
As Spring quickly turns to Summer and the temperature rises rapidly, produce from local farms begins to fill our warehouse. Our Summer Beans are grown for us by Dwelley Farms, located in Brentwood, 26 miles west of Stockton. Brentwood is an agricultural area close to the Sacramento Delta and within view of the Altamont Pass and Mt. Diablo. During the growing season, the area is characterized by hot days and cool nights which result in excellent growing conditions for a variety of fruits and vegetables-tomatoes, squash, beans, corn, cherries, peaches and apricots.
Mark Dwelley's family has been farming in the area since the 1920's. Mark has over 30 years experience on the farm and currently has over 800 acres planted to a variety of crops. Purchasing fruits and vegetables directly from local farms ensures longer shelf life as well as a higher degree of quality and freshness. We are pleased to continue our relationship with Dwelley Farms. Enjoy the harvest.
