Frog Hollow Farm Bringing Famed Warren Pears to Santa Monica Farmers Market:

Frog Hollow Farm, the Brentwood, California farm known for its legendary stone fruit, will be visiting the Santa Monica Certified Farmer’s Market from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Arizona Avenue and Second Street starting Wednesday, Sept. 23. 

Farmer Al Courchesne and others from the farm will bring thousands of pounds of organic Warren pears to share with Southern California fruit lovers.

Frog Hollow Farm is one of only a few growers to grow this incredible variety that made it onto Oprah Magazine’s Favorite Things List in 2011. 

Martha Stewart LIVING magazine has also featured Warren pears, and top chefs love to cook with this buttery and succulent variety. 

Frog Hollow Farm expects to visit the Santa Monica Certified Farmer’s Market through the end of October.

The Warren pear is a difficult variety to grow and has never caught on commercially, making it a rare fall treat. Its incredible flavor and texture make it worth the trouble — it  has a classic European texture that is very soft and juicy with a silky sweetness.

Frog Hollow Farm is a thriving 143-acre organic farm located in Brentwood, California, east of San Francisco in the fertile Sacramento River Delta. Frog Hollow Farm is home to hundreds of trees that produce peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots, apriums, plums, pluots, Asian and European pears, olives, persimmons, quince, apples and much more. Frog Hollow Farm runs a busy kitchen just outside the orchard where it produces conserves, baked good and gift baskets that they send across the United States.

Since Farmer Al embraced organic farming in 1989, Frog Hollow Farm has never looked bad and is certified organic with California Certified Organic Farmers (C.C.O.F).
