Wow, I just read my weekly email from J & P Organics that has been providing weekly organic produce deliveries from Castroville for 14+ years announcing its retirement. It's had a banner season with a huge increase in demand during the pandemic. Some weeks it had nothing in the field to sell and would take a bye. These folks were innovators, changing the subscription-only CSA model to a flexible ordering system. They will be missed. All the best to Mom and Dad in their well-deserved retirement.
"After 30 years of farming and 14 years of deliveries in the Monterey & Santa Cruz counties J&P Organics family farm decided to retire. It was a big decision coming from poppa and momma who are getting older and tired.
We want to thank from the bottom of our hearts all our members and friends for your support throughout these years. We will truly miss the happy hellos, the kid’s excitement when they saw our drivers, and even the yappy dogs.
Thank you for understanding, our hearts are with everyone."
