Stoneridge Orchards: Blueberries and Cherries Review + Giveaway
The story of Stoneridge Orchards dates back to the 1960’s in Central Washington and the modern homesteading lottery. In 1962 a gentleman by the name of Karl Dorsing had not only entered this modern homesteading lottery but won 160 acres. This win allowed him to move himself and his family to Royal City Washington and create what today is
known as Royal Ridge Fruits.
In 2010 this 3rd generational family owned and managed company created Stoneridge Orchards. Stoneridge Orchards was created for use as a consumer brand. With the creation of a consumer brand came the addition of a berry mix, dried peaches slices as well as Greek Yogurt covered fruits and Dark Chocolate covered fruits. The fertile high desert region of Central Washington was the perfect environment to grow their all natural organic cherries, blueberries, raspberries, apple and pears.

In these otherwise cedar and cranberry-apple filled days, I am thrilled to be able to bring you a fresh and versatile citrus set with this Simply Lemons.

Since I am a review blogger and thus a small business owner, time is precious and ease is preferred over almost any other option.
One of the healthiest and simplest snacks that I have discovered is freeze-dried fruit. The thing that makes these healthy is that this is a single-ingredient snack. Since it is only fruit they are non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and kosher. As an added plus they have no added sugar or artificial flavoring.
When I received the Crunchies Freeze Dried Fruit Assortment for review, I was looking forward to sample some fruits that I had not tried freeze-dried before.
For many years I lived in Ventura California, which is in Ventura County which happens to be the place for citrus. Sadly for me, during my time up there I was unaware of this fact. I wish I would have toured and seen the vast trees that undoubtedly have the smell of citrus in their leaves.
I can guarantee you though, my next trip (163 miles from my house) I will be stopping in this citrus filled valley. When I am there I will be sure to be stopping at the The Limoneira Company was founded over 124 years ago. and it’s located outside of Santa Paula in beautiful Ventura County, California.
Since many of you can not visit these fields, I am thrilled to be able to bring the citrus to you with this Heritage Select Citrus Pack.
One of my favorite scents in the entire world is lemons. There is no scent like lemon and it instantly evoke images of bright yellow color and a citrus filled fresh scent.
Since we are the humans to two cats that like to jump on counters, couches, beds and anything else that could be construed as a bed, safety in cleaning products is key. One day is occurred to me that my favorite scent was as versatile as it was good smelling.
Since I am on a quest to make the surfaces, and environment of our home safer for the humans and the cats, I was more them willing to receive a box of lemons from Limoneira Company to experiment with.
As any regular readers will know I love companies that have a unique backstory and original origins. Let’s travel back to 1960’s in Central Washington and the modern homesteading lottery. What this Homesteading Lottery did was to hold a lottery and chose “winners”. The “winners” of this lottery won 160 acres of land in Central Washington. As luck would have it, in 1962 a gentleman by the name of Karl Dorsing had not only entered this lottery but won. This win allowed him to move himself and his family to Royal City Washington.
Today those 160 acres are what is known as Royal Ridge Fruits. The fertile high desert region of Central Washington was the perfect environment to grow their all natural organic cherries, blueberries, raspberries, apple and pears. In 2010 this 3rd generational family owned and managed company created Stoneridge Orchards. Stoneridge Orchards was created for use as a consumer brand. With the creation of a consumer brand came the addition of a berry mix, dried peaches slices as well as Greek Yogurt covered fruits and Dark Chocolate covered fruits.
Stoneridge Orchards was kind enough to send us an assortment of their dried fruits and chocolate covered fruits for consideration of a review.
