Dulai Farm

Dulai Farmtitle

Fresh from Gridley, California, delicious kiwis from Dulai Farms!
Kiwi fruit is packed with vitamin C and are a colorful addition to our menus here at Plumas Lake.  They may seem exotic but these emerald delights contain many vitamins and minerals that promote your health.  High in antioxidants and fiber its safe to call these fuzzy brown bundles a 'superfood'. 
Tri-L Mandarin Ranch

Tri-L Mandarin Ranchtitle

A wonderfully fresh winter citrus!
Our schools get a fresh burst of orange color and flavor through November, December and beyond from Tri-L Mandarin Ranch in Oroville, California.  Fruit is picked fresh, packed, and delivered to us by Farmer Lou himself!
Tri-L Mandarin Ranch is a founding partner of the Feather River Gold Mandarin Coop.  Tri-L has a lovely orchard (pictured below) producing mandarins bursting with flavor!  Farmer Scott hand-delivers our school's mandarins weekly through the peak season.  These sweet treats are a definite favorite among the Kitchen Team, and the student's can't get enough of them!  
Mandarins are great additions to breakfast, make a perfect "grab'n'go" snack, and are a bright option for after-lunch treats.
