Hurst Berries---This came from a Safeway Blueberry label. To really enjoy this site and the hot links in the berry industry you need x2 or ISDN ( T1 is best, of course ). The industry links are fascinating, extremely well-done and a great illustration of how the internet is changing our lives (especially on the farms---they are as current, or more current, than most of us in Silicon Valley---you have to view their marketing, education, thoroughness, and understanding of their business). Wow!!!

Take time to explore this site, one of the best I have seen on the World Wide Web.

This is where I go to get the meats for the tailgates at the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raider home games. I also like to get special cuts of meats for special dinners or parties. While Gene's Market in Saratoga, Lunardi's in Los Gatos or Draeger's in Los Altos, have top quality, here I choose the size of the cut, the type of meat, and can order special tenderloin or have ready for me to pick-up. Great jerky, too. Very popular with hunters who bring in their "game" to be processed.

Allan Frank grows the coffee at his farm in Kona. While we were there, we discovered this California family, who grow the coffee, ship it to California, where they store and roast the beans. It evidently started for a series of coffee shops they would like to open, but has grown into a wholesale/retail coffee outlet.
This is not the "cut" versions you find on the supermarket shelf, or even some coffee shops. It puts Starbucks, Peets, and others to shame.
The coffee has no bitterness, is excellent, so good, I even make it stronger as the taste is delicious. I don't know how to describe it, but it is like drinking coffee ice cream, but not as sweet (unless you like it that way ). I put no-fat milk in mine, as I have been drinking Latte's before I knew there was a word for it.
You can order on line, or by fax, or telephoning: 800-900-KONA (5662)

The Website has a history and list of the products with current prices.
Here is some information not on their website, from a caviar tasting that we have experienced. By the way, this firm has their own "caviar farm" in Northern California, eight years in the making to produce caviar.
In our blind tasting group, we all liked the "Farmed Osetra Caviar" better the the imported. American Sturgeon Caviar also was very good, and one of my old time favorites, Gold Pearl Salmon Caviar was outstanding.
