We now have Valencia Oranges and they are so sweet and juicy!

I woke up this morning to the first glass of fresh squeezed Valencia Orange juice from our tree. Valencia Oranges are the traditional Florida juice oranges and these are so sweet and juicy! They are a great orange to slice and eat in wedges, and can also be peeled and eaten like a navel orange but be ready to use a napkin! If you would like to get some of these delicious oranges to try them yourself just contact us to arrange a time to pick them up. They are $2.00 per pound or 5 pound bags are $8.00 if you pick them up at the farm.

We also have Meyer Lemons, Eureka Lemons and blood oranges available for purchase at the farm. These are $2.00 per pound or $8.00 per 5 pound bag,

We hope to see you soon!

The first citrus of the season: Limes!

key-and-bearss-limes

The first citrus of the season to ripen in our Sierra Foothill Location are limes. These will be followed by Satsuma Mandarins, then Meyer lemons, Oro Blanco Pomelos and finally Blood and Navel Oranges as we progress into the winter. We are now harvesting and selling Bearss limes grown on our farm here in Newcastle.

Most supermarket limes are grown in Mexico, harvested when they are barely ripe, shipped to the US and often stored for weeks before purchase. They tend to be low in juice content due to these harvest conditions.

In contrast, our limes are grown right here in the Sierra Foothills of California, using no pesticides or herbicides, and they ripen to perfection in the autumn sun. As limes ripen they color up from dark green, to a lighter green, and then finally yellow. We pick them at the light green stage, sometimes with a touch of yellow, and they are very juicy and flavorful. They are harvested TO ORDER, and when they reach you we guarantee they will be the juiciest limes you have ever purchased.

If you would like to order limes to pick up from the farm, please contact us using this contact information.
