We are a family owned and operated citrus orchard. Our 20 acre ranch is located 30 miles east of Sacramento, Ca. atop the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We planted 2,000 Satsuma Owari Mandarins trees in the year 2000. In addition to these trees we have 250 Tango mandarins, 100 navels, 50 Minneola Tangelos, 30 pomegrantes, peaches, apricots, plums, and cherries. We live in and on our orchard, a beautiful ridge top with a 150 mile view of the upper Sacramento valley, mountains and awesome sunsets. The combination of warm days, cool nights, and fertile soil that drains well provides an ideal climate to grow top quality mandarin oranges.
Our farm practices are organic in belief and methodology, but we are not certified organic. We use no pesticides, weed killers, or synthentic fertizlers. We use mowing, weedeating, and hand labor to deal with weeds. We use compost and OMRI approved materials for fertilizer, and have recently added a compost tea brewer.
We ship tree ripened fruit that is meticulously hand picked and packed with great care so as to provide you and your family with the best tasting fruit possible. We hope you enjoy how good quality tastes.
