September 04, 2012: "They grow everything organically. We
have a program up here in humboldt that allows people to use
their ebt cards to buy produce at the farmers market; you tell
the market manager how much you want and they run your ebt card
and give you these wooden coins to use at each vendor. Anyway, I
have always gotten amazing produce from her both at the farmers
market in fortuna and at the stand in pepperwood. She sells
blackberry popsicles that are incredibley delicious."

"First time there last weekend, lots of delicious varieties of
apples! They said should have apples until around Thanksgiving."
Comments from a visitor on November 17, 2011: "I visited
Troxell's apple orchard yesterday and bought the most beautiful,
delicious apples. People need to know about these beautiful
apples and where to get them. A lot of people do not go to
farmers market and do not know where to get good local apples. I
met a man in Wal Mart buying canning jars, I asked him what he
was canning, he said apples from Troxells. That is the only way
I knew they were still in business. I hope this helps to update
their information. Linda Elliott"
