Friend's Ranches

IN SEASON NOW September 2014
We are harvesting Valencia oranges, W. Murcott Tangerines, Ojai Grapefruit, Eureka lemons, and of course our Ojai honey, freshly squeezed orange juice and lemonade. We are also picking our small, but tasty Pomegranate crop.  Enjoy!

Due to the early warm weather we have wrapped up our Mail Order season.  We simply do not have the selection available for shipping and the fruit this time of year is too fragile to ship.  

Mark your Calendars!  September 27th is Ventura County Farm Day.  We will have our doors (but not orchard) open for juice tasting, family history and we hope you can visit us. 

In order for us to organize how to run our blind OJ tasting please tell us about your Orange Juice preferences. Thanks!

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.

July, 2013 Time flies– happy summer!

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,...
