YES! The road to us is open-- but the road past us is closed.
Our packinghouse is open all year on Tuesday and Friday mornings 7am-noon; we hope you can swing by when we are there to purchase Ojai citrus from us. (You may find us there other times as well-- if we are available to sell we leave the door open).
We are 4 miles up Hwy 33/Maricopa Hwy from the Vons shopping center in Ojai-- don't use your GPS (it won't work well due to limited service on Hwy 33), enjoy the views and look for the big warehouse on the right side of the road. (If you get to some tunnels you went too far).
WHAT'S IN SEASON: November 2023
Late summer into fall is the best time for Valencia oranges, they are superbly sweet and can be peeled, sliced or juiced. We also have lemons, honey, our fresh squeezed juices and more!
Mail order: We only ship fruit mid-January through May. Due to Mother Nature's whims we have a small crop of most varieties for 2024 (it was too cold and wet during bloom (spring of 2023) for fruit to set). We will post our mail order choices Thanksgiving week, but may have less variety than past years.
We do not offer u-pick: it is prohibited by insurance and food safety law. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please purchase fruit from local farmers; there are plenty of fruit stands around Ojai if ours is not open.
Our family has been growing citrus in the Ojai Valley for over 100 years!
We currently attend three farmers’ markets in Southern California year-round as well as selling directly from our packinghouse. 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.
