Our packinghouse is open on Tuesday and Friday mornings-- we hope you can swing by when we are there to purchase Ojai citrus from us.
October 2018: Fall is in the air!
We are busy pruning trees and cutting down those that collapsed this past year. It's been a tough year with the fire, heat and lack of rainfall. We are anxiously awaiting a wet winter.
We are currently harvesting: Valencia oranges, W. Murcott tangerines and a few pomegranates. Sometime in late November/early December we will start in with the new tangerine season and Navel oranges. It's going to be a very light crop year in 2019 due to the weather events of 2018 (remember, citrus blooms but once a year and the fruit takes over a year to ripen, so the fruits of 2019 had to weather the fire, heat wave, etc).
Our family has been growing citrus in the Ojai Valley for over 100 years!
We currently attend four 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.
