MAILORDER: order now with a holiday note option and fruit will ship in a few months when it tastes best!
Sadly, we will not have enough of our early season fruit to do any shipping until February. We simply do not have the fruit-- the drought has really affected our Navel, Avocado, Meyer Lemon and Clementine trees. The trees have only a couple of fruits each. May it rain.
IN SEASON November 2016 Winter tangerine season starting
We have tasty W.Murcotts tangerines, Valencia oranges, Lemons and Satsuma tangerines. From now until we get our winter rains start in earnest is the best time for Valencia oranges-- they are the citrus that originally put Ojai on the citrus map. Sweet, well-balanced flavor excellent for juicing and snacking.
We also have our Ojai honey, freshly squeezed orange juice and lemonade.
Next in season will be Lee tangerines and Clementines-- they should be ready for harvest in December. We have a rather small crop of these early tangerines due to the drought (we pruned extensively to reduce the tree canopy and thereby lower the irrigation needs over this past summer).
We are at our packinghouse EVERY Tuesday and Friday 7am until noon
Our family has been growing citrus in the Ojai Valley for over 100 years!
Throughout this time our operation has gone through a lot of changes, expansions and cuts as well as changes in the fruit we grow and how we sell it.
We currently attend four farmers’ markets in Southern California year-round as well as selling directly from our packinghouse and through our on-line mail order. We also sell our tangerines to wholesalers throughout California.
Our goal is to grow, pack and sell the best fruit we can that you, the consumer, demand. We hope you find our fruit as delicious as we do! As the customer, you ultimately decide what we grow and sell. We always appreciate your input.
We truly are a small family farm, operated by 4 family members, 4 employees, as well as the input of the our new fifth generation of tangerine eaters (Matthew, Andrew, Mariana, Oliver and Celeste)! Feel free to peruse the links to the left to find out more about our farm and our family.
