Why Discover Pears?

Farmer Al Courchesne of Frog Hollow Farm is responsible for this website’s creation. Having been committed to organic and sustainable farming since early on in the movement, he is well known in the community, and Frog Hollow’s remarkable fruit is praised in gourmet circles and by chefs and foodies across the country.

A 130 acre farm in California, pears are Frog Hollow’s main fall and winter harvest. Farmer Al would naturally like people to buy his farm’s fruit, as his pears are rare varieties not commonly grown and Frog Hollow is one of the few organic farms that sells and ships directly to customers. He’s also positive that the more people who know about pears and learn to enjoy them will soon discover what makes Frog Hollow’s pears as unique and desirable as its peaches.

Whether you purchase fresh organic pears from Frog Hollow or get your fruit from another producer, we encourage you eat seasonally and enjoy the wonderful diversity of pears. We hope you enjoy the recipes and information we have here on Discover Pears and invite you to share your own tips, experiences, ideas, or good eats for dining in or dining out.
