Substitutions and Arrival Dates
At FreconFarms.com we strive to discover many of the world’s unique goods so that we may offer them to you. Due to the distinct nature of our goods, they cannot be mass-produced and are often available in a very limited quantity. If the product or some of the items within an individual gift is unavailable, we may substitute an item of equal or greater value and reserve the right to do so. We thank you for understanding.
Unpredictable weather can often delay fruit harvests at Frecon Farms up to three weeks or more. In some cases, seasonal fruits that are traditionally offered in FreconFarms.com gifts are unavailable or do not meet our standards and will be replaced with another type of fruit that is in season fruit and does meet our high standards. If you would like to know how the harvest is progressing and what is in season, please mail us at info@FreconFarms.com.
The value of a FreconFarms.com gift
You truly get an old fashioned promise of value from FreconFarms.com.
The Frecon family business has been growing in the rolling hills of Boyertown, PA, for over 65 years. We have always known our customers by their first names and therefore have never left quality to chance. We know our customers and they know us. What our customers know about the Frecon’s is that we hold ourselves to the highest standards and take personal pride in the quality of our products and the happiness of our customers. This same philosophy is applied to our Web Business and to you, our new friends and customers. From the crunch of our apples to the juiciness of our peaches to the curl of our ribbons - if something doesn't meet our highest standards, it will not be included in our gift baskets.
We pick, sort, wrap, and pack every gift individually, by hand – just as you would prepare a gift for a friend or loved one. We also grow our own fruit at the farm started by our grandfather, now run by our father. Frecon’s truly is a family business; extraordinary attention to detail and pride in our craftsmanship is what distinguishes us from the rest. You can be assured that these qualities will be seen in each of our gifts and will be a direct reflection of your own thoughtfulness and taste. This is our promise to you and it is that promise which is the true value of our gifts.
