2009 Oregon Frozen Fruit order

I'm passing along this information for anyone who might be interested. Feel free to pass it along, and send the order to Norma, not me.
2009 Oregon Fruit & Berry Order Information
Order Deadline - Must Be Rec'd By June 27th

This is the eleventh year we have been doing a group order for IQF, or individually quick frozen, fruit and berries from Oregon. If you are interested in ordering any of this fruit I must receive your orders and your payment by June 27th. As in the past, all orders must be prepaid.  That's because I have to pay for the full order in advance.  Delivery is usually in the first week of September, but I will notify you by email as soon as I get a delivery date and time.

These fruits come in boxes with individually quick frozen berries (no sugar unless indicated), or as fruit pieces (apples, peaches, apricot halves, red rhubarb). They are packaged inside a large plastic bag in a cardboard box filled with 14# of fruit. The seedless berry purees come in plastic buckets.

Here are the 2009 Oregon fruit and berry prices:

Marion Blackberries - $37/14# box
Red Raspberries - $49/14# box
Boysenberries - $37/14# box
Blueberries - $39/14# box

You may print out this list and send your order to me by snail mail, by e-mail, or bring it to my home in Sharonville in person. Be sure to state which fruits or berries you want, the quantities (how many boxes or buckets of each) and the price per item, then the total for each item. Then please total your whole order and send me a check for the full amount.  Make checks out to me: Norma Curry. Please include your e-mail address so that I can send you an e-mail confirmation affirming that I received your order and payment.  I will also be sending notice about pick-up by e-mail.

Fruit pick-up is usually in September at Northland Ice Skating (or somewhere in the parking lot of the shopping center there) in Evendale, just east of I-75 on Glendale Milford, or west of I-71 on Pfeiffer and 42 (Reading Road). Pfeiffer becomes Glendale Milford west of Reed Hartman.

Most prices this year are $1 higher due to increased fuel costs. Blueberries, which were $52 in 2007, have dropped to $38 this year.  Red Raspberries, which rose sharply last year, have remained at $49/box, due to short crops on the world market in Europe and Chile, as well as continued low yields in the Northwest.

Please feel free to pass this information along to other groups or to anyone who might be interested in ordering. This is an open group order, not restricted to CATCH (Cincinnati Area Teaching Children at Home) members. We can only get this fruit delivery once a year, so don't miss out on Mother Nature's best tasting anti-oxidant boosters. These are great in smoothies, pies, cakes, muffins, in yogurt or on top of ice cream. We put frozen berries in our oatmeal almost every morning.

With today's high transportation costs there are no refunds, so please be sure that you or one of your friends or family can pick up your pre-paid order.

E-mail me if you have questions, need more information or wish to place your order.
