Meet one of our most popular mountain growers, Chris Hoover from Placerville.
Chris Hoover is known for his unwavering love of 49ers football, but also his mouth-watering tree-ripened orchard fruit and summer berries. Customers love his Fantasia nectarines especially.
But this year Chris almost gave up farming completely. May brought Hooverville Orchards terrible luck, with an unprecedented onslaught of hail wreaking havoc on all 73 acres of his farm, seriously damaging every crop he grows. Chris is now left desperate for help, and hoping the collective compassion of people can outweigh the impact of merciless storms.
If you’d like to learn more, just search “Hooverville Hail.” Chris is also taking volunteers to help thin the trees, tossing out the most severely damaged developing fruits so that he can save the best of what is left on the farm.
