If you are a regular reader of our newsletters, you know we’re all about local. And if you’re newer to Bella Viva Orchards’ newsletters and you’re into the concept of keeping it local, you’re in for a treat! It means so many things, including providing work opportunities for people in our communities, which in turn helps them feed their families. It helps local growers support each other with respect for our environment and an eye on health, quality and helping our communities thrive. Our Certified Organic Thompson Seedless Grapes come to us from our trusted partners just to the south of us. We truly value the many people who look after every aspect of getting those Grapes ready for us so we can offer you delicately-fleshed, pleasantly sweet Certified Organic Thompson Seedless Raisins. Being local also means that those fruits don’t need to hop on a ship and burn enormous amounts of fuel to get to us from other parts of the globe. And a major plus? Yes, they’re local. And double YES, they’re organically grown. What’s not to love about that!?

You may insert a lively Yayyyy now! We’re pretty excited, too!
