Bonacich Orchards apricots debut at Menlo’s Farmer’s Market

by Linda Hubbard on June 6, 2010

Honey Rich apricots grown by Bonacich Orchards in Patterson, CA, made their debut at Menlo Park’s Farmer’s Market this morning. Orchard owner George Bonacich is a leading proponent of water quality protection and was one of the first growers to do nutrient budgeting. Finding that he had sufficient nutrients in his well water, he stopped using nitrogen fertilizer. According to the Agriculture Water Quality Alliance, by not using fertilizer, he has saved money, improved water quality, and his apricots have thrived. He also uses micro-sprinklers to eliminate irrigation runoff. The big payoff to market shoppers – apricots that both look and taste good!
