Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

The Salinas Valley growing region is expected to be hit with it's first storm this Sunday lasting until Tuesday. This storm will bring up to an inch of rain.

Industry-wide, this rain will limit supplies of lettuce, romaine, green leaf, broccoli, and cauliflower as well as diminish the quality and shelf lives.


  • Little to no harvest on Monday & Tuesday
  • Slow harvest early next week due to muddy conditions
    • Excessive mud/dirt on product & box
  • Continued quality issues including mildew will decrease yields.
  • Shippers enforcing averages across the board going forward.

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