What a year its been you guys!
Maybe it’s not entirely true to say I’m sad to see 2021 go, but I was as happy as everyone else to put 2020 in the rearview mirror. Of course there have been challenges, but this was such a memorable year for a lot of great reasons.
Our mission is to give our customers the best fruit possible, to put it simply. And as you may have noticed, we’ve been working hard to keep getting better and improving on that mission. Some of the big projects this year: rebuilding our website, adding many new team members, and brand new packaging across the board (so exciting!). And we even got to celebrate our hometown Milwaukee Bucks winning it all this summer.
But y’all responded! Once again, this year was our best ever thanks to you. At our little family company, we’re all so grateful for the community that has grown here and the love we continue to receive. Personally, it’s a dream that I’ve been able to continue doing something I love doing and providing something of value. And to think that I can continue what my grandfather started 31 years ago, it’s been a privilege.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from this year. From visiting our partner farms, to developing new recipes, to just seeing the happiness that comes from fruit…I’ll remember the good things 2021 brought us. Thank you, truly, from the whole team here at Tree-Ripe! And look for even bigger things in 2022!
