We use sustainable practices in growing our produce. We are a small farm, so we do not participate in the organic certification process, but all fertilizer and insect control products used on our crops are OMRI certified for organic agriculture. We use weed eating, flaming and composting for weed control, never any herbicides. If you come up to the farm you are welcome to take a tour with us to learn more about our growing practices, as we are proud of our stewardship of the earth.

If you can not make it up to the farm this Sunday, you are welcome to come up at other times as we are usually here and happy to have visitors. Just contact us before you come up to make sure we are here and that the gate is open!

We hope to see you soon on the farm!

The first citrus of the season are here: 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 Key limes and 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.

You can also order a box of limes shipped to any address in the continental US. Please contact us for more information
