Friend's Ranches

IN SEASON NOW    March 2015              Ojai Pixie tangerines!!
Tangerines galore-- Ojai Pixie Tangerines, W.Murcotts, Tahoe Gold tangerines and some others as well. 
Meyer Lemons, Eureka lemons, our new crop of Valencia oranges, Blood oranges and Fuerte Avocados.
And of course our Ojai honey, freshly squeezed orange juice and lemonade.  

We are at our packinghouse EVERY Tuesday and Friday 7am until noon 

All of our citrus is 2 to 3 weeks ahead of schedule due to the prolonged summer which lasted from mid-January through November 2014!  
We are looking at a world record harvest of Ojai Pixies starting in March-- the trees are completely covered in fruit!   Hope you are ready for a bountiful 2015.  

Mail Order 2015: Shipping is in full swing!  Every Monday we are busy picking and shipping boxes all over the continental US!

Springtime orchard tours!  Sign up to come visit us and learn all about what we do.  We are real farmers who will guide you through our orchard, tasting as we go.

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.

The summer seems to be flying by; the youngest members of the family have been busy all summer; nobody needs naps anymore, so many long days playing in the orchard,...
