Doser: Seedling Fruit
Founder: Peter Klein
From friends to Farmer: Klein made the jump from the restaurant industry to farmer when his favorite fruit sellers mentioned that they were retiring and selling their 100-year-old, 81-acre orchard. Seedling now grows over 80 varieties of fruit and produces single-varietal apple ciders and flavored blends in its own cider mill.
Why we love him: Seedling sells only fruit in their prime. Klein uses a refractometer to measure sugars, and endeavors to pick and sell only perfectly ripe fruit.
Products: Apples, peaches, berries, melons, dried fruit, preserves and excellent fruit-cider smoothies
Dose appearances: June 5, July 10, August 14 and November 6.
