Support our community and stock up for the holidays!
Stock the freezer with your favorite locally-sourced fruits and berries. Never picked early, these delights are harvested at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen into perfect individual pieces. They’re great for holiday desserts, jams and preserves, smoothies, yogurt parfaits, salads, pies, pancake batter, mixed drinks? … and anything else you’d like to put them in!
Hazelnuts are an Oregon specialty and we’re proud to have some available this year. We have large bags of diced hazelnuts for makings treats, as well as candied and salted varieties that are great to enjoy anytime or add to a holiday gift basket.
Our Fruit & Filbert Fundraiser is a great way to support your community. Every dollar we make is reinvested into the people and organizations of West Salem. In fact, the entire fundraiser is designed with community in mind; from our farmers at Hazelnut Growers of Oregon, to our teachers at SKPS… and everywhere in between!
All orders must be picked up on November 18th behind the West Salem Roth's Fresh Market from 11am-2pm.
Questions and Answers
Q: Are these individual pieces of fruit or frozen blobs?
A: Our fruit is individually quick frozen (IQF), so they move around freely in the bag.
Q: How are they packaged?
A: Our fruit is bagged, then boxed. The large 30lb and 40lb box has one big bag in it, the others have multiple smaller bags.
Q: How much do they cost?
A: We have local delicacies in bulk. Our price-per-pound is very competitive and rivals that of large warehouse stores- only our bags are bigger. Great bang-for-your-buck!
Q: How do I get my berries after I order them?
A: This is a local presale. After the presale, we’ll distribute the products in the parking lot behind Roth’s in West Salem. Meet us there Saturday, November 18 from 11am-2pm!
Q: Can I use the berries for jam?
A: the only difference with making jam with frozen fruit is that it needs to be thawed before processing.
Q: Whoa, whoa! You have hazelnuts now?
A: Absolutely. In three different assortments: dry roasted (diced) for baking, salted, and milk chocolate.
Q: Are filberts the same as hazelnuts?
A: Yes! Hazelnuts used to be commonly known as filberts but were rebranded as hazelnuts to sound more appealing. What do you think? Did it work?
