Blood orange season is almost here!

We’ll begin picking around January 5 and will be ready for local orders and online mail orders around January 15 (we’ll activate our ‘farm store’ in the next few weeks).

Looking forward to another great harvest.

Thanks

Blood Orange Season 2016

The end of Summer and beginning of Fall this year has seen some rain already, which is very good news for us farmers. We are hopeful for the predicted El Nino to bring us much-appreciated precipitation. Our blood orange trees have good fruit set again this year, and we plan on selling fruit via this site again. Stay tuned to our website for info on when they’ll be available for purchase, both locally and online.

Thank you again for all of your support!

Peaches 2015 – Fast and Furious

The peach and apricot season came and went in a hurry this year. A combination of weird weather (hot hot hot and then almost freezing, then some rain, then some intense heat again) plus large amounts of bees enjoying our fruit led to a very quick peach season. We had another successful year of the fruit stand, saw many of our favorite customers that stopped by to chat. While the season was quick, the fruit was delicious like always. With the prediction of a heavy El Nino for winter 2015-2016, we are hopeful for some more-traditional stone fruit weather and happy trees for the 2016 peach season.

See you for blood oranges in January 2016.

Thank you again everyone for your support,
