November’s Cornucopia: Giving Thanks for Our Bounty!

November’s Cornucopia: Giving Thanks for Our Bounty!

Cozy FireplaceThe days have arrived when we throw on our favorite sweaters at the end of the day, get a nice fire going and look back on this year with gratitude. This year, that’s quickly coming to a close, has been filled with heart-warming gatherings with family and friends, watching our family grow, celebrating a bountiful growing season and providing you – our dear customers – a great array of California-grown fruits and nuts. While the warm days of harvest are behind us, that time is replaced with getting ready for the holidays.

Yep, the season is upon us! Can you believe it?
Before we stroll over to our virtual cornucopia, we want to take a few moments to let you know how much we appreciate you. It’s because of you that we at Bella Viva Orchards do what we do. Because you crave beautiful fruits and nuts throughout the year, we are energized to continue growing, sourcing and drying beautiful fruits and nuts. It is our wish that you enjoy beautiful fruits, nuts and a beautiful life and we love being a part of it!

We really could go on forever to share how sincerely thankful we are for you. It’s from our hearts. Part of the way we express our gratitude is to bring out our best with every harvest – every year. Now that we’re celebrating the end of the season we head back to that cornucopia. This year, though the season came a bit later than usual, Mother Nature delivered and we are celebrating the bounty! One end-of-the-season crop, our Certified Organic Dried Persimmons, is grown by our next door neighbor and grower-partner.

Dried and Fresh Persimmon

These Persimmons are the quintessential autumn fruit, with their deep orangey-red hued flesh. For those of you who have enjoyed these fruits in the past, you know how tasty they are. If you haven’t tried them yet, we say this is a great time to do so! They’re packed with great nutrients and boast a host of health benefits. We suggest you enjoy them for these reasons – and because they have a naturally warm and spicy flavor – kind of like pumpkin spice. And these fruits contain absolutely no additives whatsoever. A win-win for you, wouldn’t you say?

Also tumbling out of that cornucopia right now are our Certified Organic Pecans! Hmm, they make nice partners for those Certified Organic Dried Persimmons, huh? These locally-grown nuts are the darlings of fall. Think about it: They make great anytime healthful snacks AND they make themselves at home in both sweet and savory meals. Think about getting your holiday baking groove on now with these pleasantly crunchy, tasty nuts that are completely GMO-free and additive-free.
