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!
