Covid-19; Updated Availabilities, Many items added this week!

To our valued customers,

We are facing unprecedented times affecting all of us. With constantly evolving and unpredictable circumstances we at Pioneer Gardens are doing all we can to protect our people, manage our farm and continue to focus on our customers’ needs.

Unfortunately, some of your businesses are negatively impacted. We understand this and we are here to work with you. If you need to delay or reduce an order, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible, allowing us time to make adjustments or provide us with the opportunity to try to move excess product elsewhere.

Wishing all of you good health in the broadest sense of the word.

Sincerely,

Arjen
