We are now taking online orders for Satsuma Mandarins for farm curbside pick-up

This year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our farm is not open for direct cash sales. However we have plenty of Satsuma Mandarins and expect to be selling them from November 21 through the New Year. This year all orders will be taken through online pre-paid order links with self service curbside pick-up at the farm.

We have 10 pound boxes for $16 dollars and 5 pound bags for $8.50. Orders are available for pick-up on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 pm and other times by arrangement.

Please send us an email if you would like to receive an email with a description of our online order process along with links to order mandarins from our farm.

Thank you for your patience and support of our farm. As we are constantly reminded, we are not in control of the farm, mother nature is.

Our Satsuma Mandarin harvest has started

Adrian tests fruit every few days to determine when it is time to start our harvest

This time of year, every few days we head out to the orchard to pick a few mandarins. We check the color, then test them for sugar content with a brix refractometer, and taste them to determine if there are enough ripe mandarins to begin our harvest. This year our harvest started early, we have a good supply for a long season, and the brix readings are the highest we have ever had. So there will be plenty of extra sweet fruit, and there will be a long harvest season. But it will not ripen all at the same time.

Right now we are selling our mandarins directly from our farm through prepaid online orders with curbside pick up.  Please contact us if you would like us to send you order links with more information on how to order our mandarins for farm pick up this year.

We have not started shipping boxes of mandarins yet but will post on our website when shipped boxes are available.

Thank you for your patience. We love our customers who know we will never harvest a mandarin until it is perfectly ripe!
