thmb

On a blustery fall day, the Superfresh Growers team joined Dave Gleason, chief horticulturist, for the annual End of Harvest Party. Warehouse managers and office staff joined the celebration , which took place in a local Pink Lady apple orchard. Gleason fired up the BBQ as the Superfresh Growers team celebrated harvest and the seasonal change. Of course, farm tasks never slow down. Now that apple and pear harvest is finished, Gleason reported that the farm team “is busy preparing ground for next spring, putting in posts and trellis systems, as well as getting ready to prune and sh ape trees for next year’s crop.”

As the Superfresh Growers farm team wraps up the year, Gleason reminded us this is a time for sharing with family and friends. “I’d like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season with your family,” Gleason said. From the Superfresh Growers family to yours, “Happy Thanksgiving!”
