Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

Due to recent cold weather and significant rain in the desert growing regions of Southern California and Western Arizona (Yuma), Arugula and other tender leaf vegetables are in very short supplies. Shippers are dealing with muddy fields which has slowed down the packing process and delayed loading times. Many shippers have reported lighter supplies and are prorating orders. Most shippers are prorating Arugula at 50% and with the storms approaching, it will continue through next.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative.
