It is a Frequently Asked Question
Why are Fresh Peppers out of Stock?
Our season runs between June and the first frost of the year (generally September). If we show out of stock during that time, it is because it is off season. If it is on season, inventory will go into and out of stock daily due to the nature of our unique business.
Weather permitting and on season, we pick, pack, and ship the previous day’s orders firs thing in the AM. When complete, I walk the field, gardens, and high tunnel to see what I can offer for the next day. It is the only way to make sure we have what we offer for sale and that I am physically capable of getting it in the mail the next day. If we did it any other way we would have the same horrible reputation that a few other growers have built. I would much rather keep the good reputation and make a wee bit less money.
