Grimmway Farms Celebrates Tenth Anniversary of Tehachapi Organic Produce Stand
Local Customers ‘Have Their Pick’ of Cal-Organic Fruits and Vegetables
TEHACHAPI, CA, JUNE 24, 2017 – Summer has officially arrived in the Tehachapi-Cummings Valley, with today’s annual opening of the Cal-Organic Farms produce stand in Tehachapi, providing residents and visitors alike with direct access to the Valley’s freshest, organic fruits and vegetables – right from the farm.
“Residents tell us they wait all year for the stand to open,” said Jeff Huckaby, president of Grimmway Farms, the parent company of Cal-Organic. “This marks the tenth consecutive year we’ve operated the stand on Bear Valley Road, which beckons customers with its simple, bold and historic ‘Organic Produce’ stenciled signage.” Huckaby noted that when the stand first opened, it offered only items grown in the Tehachapi area. “Demand is now so great we send an additional delivery each Friday night, so that on Saturday customers can have their pick of the organics we’re harvesting in Bakersfield, Lamont, and Arvin as well.”
Cal-Organic Farms first opened its Tehachapi produce stand in 2007 in response to requests from local residents looking to purchase fresh, organic produce. Today, the stand offers a wide variety of farm fresh options, including arugula, beets, bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, chard, cilantro, collard greens, daikon, dandelion, fennel, green onions, kale, leeks, lettuce (butter, leaf, iceberg, romaine), mustard greens, parsley, and radishes.
The stand, located at 23968 Bear Valley Road in Tehachapi, will be open every Saturday, June 24 through September 2. Operating hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and cash and checks are accepted (no credit or debit cards).
