I've said it many times and I will say it again, I am so blessed to work in the agriculture community and be surrounded by great people each day. Today was no different. Farmers love to share their harvest; especially around the holiday. Today brought us almonds, pecans and mandarins! All local and all yummy.
The mandarins are in season right now here in Butte County. Farm Bureau members Lou and Lola Lodigiani brought us a bag of Oroville's finest fruit. With only two of us in the office, we will each be going home a substantial portion (minus the two I already ate as dessert after lunch.) You can find Lou and Lola's mandarins at http://www.mandarins4you.com/. And if you hurry, you can still get these shipped to your house before Christmas. Cut-off is Dec 19th!
The almond and pecans are from past Butte Farm Bureau President and Director Ed and his wife Debbie McLaughlin of Durham. Not too many acres of pecans in Butte County (335 to be exact) so I feel very special to have this bag of nuts. Thanks Ed and Debbie for thinking of us. And you can never go wrong with a can of Blue Diamond Almonds. And the almonds you can order online and have those shipped to your house too. They make a great gift or stocking stuffer.
Do you have a favorite local product that you share with friends and family?
