This next gift is perfect for the hard-to-buy-for person on your list, or the person who already has everything they “need”. Not only does this gift provide a wonderful sweet, healthy and high quality treat to the recipient, it also does double duty by GIVING TWICE! For every Naumes Gourmet Fruit Gift purchased, the Naumes family will match it, pound for pound, with a donation of fresh fruit to food banks that feed hungry families.
Here is a bit of background about the company:
Naumes: More than 100 years ago, the Naumes family began growing fruit in Oregon. Over three generations, we have expanded our farming along the west coast into California and Washington where we grow, harvest and sell our fruit to major retailers nationwide. As stewards of the land, we are proud to be one of the largest grower of pears in the country. Our newest venture, an online store at naumesfruitgifts.com, grew from our family’s desire to bring the highest quality fruit directly from our farm to your family’s table. We grow every piece of fruit in our fruit gifts on our own farms and harvest every piece of premium fruit by hand, assuring our customers receive the very best that nature has to offer. Now, with every fruit gift purchased, our family will donate an equal amount of fresh fruit—pound for pound—to food banks that feed hungry families.
There are five pear gift box options available. One example is the Comice Pear Gift Box: This signature fruit gift is brimming with delicious Comice pears. Beneath their blushed cheeks, your recipients will discover the sweetest and juiciest of all pears. These perfectly plump Comice pears are the fresh fruit equivalent of a creamy custard. Their succulent flesh pairs deliciously with strong cheeses. The ideal blend of sunshine, sweet soil, and experienced growing produces our premium Comice pears. We pack our superior Comice fresh pears in a holiday gift box ready to delight your loved ones. Send them this healthy holiday gift and we'll donate an equal amount of fresh fruit to a local food bank.
