Mail order: We provide a seasonal mail order business which is available for every state in the continental US (except Arizona).
Direct sales, Farmers’ Markets: The bulk of our efforts and sales are for our new and loyal customers at direct markets. We currently attend four farmers’ markets throughout southern California where you can sample and buy a variety of freshly picked citrus including our many varieties of sweet, flavorful tangerines! We also sell our very popular fresh squeezed juices at the farmers’ markets. Unlike large citrus growers, we pick our fruit only on order. Our fruit is normally picked and packed (or squeezed) the day prior to the market, insuring freshness to the consumer.
No doubt we are prejudiced, but we think the Ojai Valley has the best soil and climate for citrus anywhere in the world. As quality is our business, only the sweetest and finest of our fruit is sold under our name. You can fool a person only once with a poor fruit and then you must find a new customer. We prefer the alternative – to serve only the best fruit and have the nicest customers!
The best way to enjoy our delicious fruit is to visit the beautiful Ojai Valley. Away from the busy freeways, Ojai offers great recreational facilities – boating on Lake Casitas, camping in the Los Padres National Forest, Tennis in Libbey Park, Golf, browsing Ojai’s shops and art galleries, or just relaxing at a hotel with scenic views of the Valley.While in Ojai, you can visit our packinghouse during hours of operation (Tuesday and Friday mornings 7am-noon), or meet us at the Ojai Farmers’ market on Sunday mornings.
**BRING YOUR OWN BAGS: Many cities in California are banning plastic bags; please pack some reusable bags in your car or farmers’ market cart so you have something to put your produce into when you visit farmers’ markets and grocery stores. Thanks!

Wholesale: We are a small farm, busy selling the bulk of our fruit directly to consumers and at the same time do sell some of our tangerines wholesale (Ojai Pixies, Dancy Tangerines and W.Murcotts). There are several chains in the southern California area (New Frontiers, Gelson’s, Bristol Farms) that take our fruit as well as several independent wholesale buyers (Berryman, Melissa’s World Variety, The Fruit Guys). If you are interested in buying wholesale quantities (more than 20 cartons in one purchase) please don’t hesitate to contact us.
